Since its inception in 1984 the Society of Architectural Historians Australia and New Zealand (SAHANZ) has held annual conferences, with peer reviewed proceedings. The conferences usually include a triple-stream programme, invited keynote speakers and associated field-trips. In 1989 the society established its refereed journal, Fabrications, which now appears as three issues yearly.
While the Society welcomes research considering all aspects of architectural history and theory, over the last three decades members have produced an impressive body of work relating to the architecture of first nations’ people in Australasia and the South Pacific. Furthermore, as early as 1992 the annual conference called for papers relating to Asia and Australasia, and SAHANZ continues to encourage the development of research networks in this area. In particular, we invite scholars to submit work on Asian architecture to our annual conference and journal.
