The Society of Architectural Historians Historic Interiors Affiliate Group (HIG) announces its first annual New Research Symposium: Interiors and their Histories.
The symposium will showcase innovative projects, highlighting ground-breaking research and methods in the historical study of the conception, design, representation, experience, preservation, and interpretation of interior spaces across time and geography. We seek work notable for its creative exploration of archival material, oral history, theoretical models, fieldwork, and interpretation, with a special emphasis on the revision or reconceptualization of the interiors history canon.
Graduate students, postdocs and recent graduates (2018-) from diverse disciplinary fields of study are invited to send proposals for brief 10-minute talks. The presentations will take place online via a live Zoom webinar on May 21, 2021.
