Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada invites session proposals

 Anniversaries are a time to look back, but also to look ahead; to reflect on where we have been, where we are, and where we hope to go.

This year, the Society for the Study of Architecture in Canada (SSAC) marks 40 years of study, scholarship, writing, teaching, learning and caring about the built environment in Canada, which they will revel in at their annual conference in Fredericton, New Brunswick, taking place from May 28-31, 2014.

For four decades, the SSAC has engaged the past and present in an energetic dialogue spanning history, heritage, historiography, mo­dernity, design and theory. As they celebrate a milestone along this extraordinary shared journey, they invite colleagues from across disciplines and across the country to join them in exploring the profound presence of our built heritage – historic and contemporary – in our communities and in our lives.

As they have for 40 years, they welcome proposals for sessions and papers on all aspects of the built envi­ronment in Canada. Session proposals should include: name and one-page CV of proposed session chair(s); title and abstract of the session (maximum 200 words); format of session: paper session, panel discussion, debate, etc.; names of possible or invited presenters (if known); any special physical or technical requirements for the session .

Please send session proposals to John Leroux and Peter Coffman peter. no later than November 22, 2013. A call for papers will follow at the beginning of December 2013.
