If you build it, it can contribute to a more sustainable future. That’s the aspiration behind the ambitious McGill project known as Building Architecture Research Node (BARN), which was awarded over $7.5 million through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) Innovation Fund (IF) today. With funds from the Government of Quebec, BARN will receive more than $19 million in research support.
The 2021 Virtual Conference of the Society of Architectural Historians will bring scholars, practitioners, professionals, and students in architectural history and related fields together online to share new research on the history of the built environment, engage in thought-provoking conversations, and connect with colleagues from around the world. The Virtual Conference will take place between Tuesday, April 13, and Saturday, April 17, and will include 36 paper sessions with live Q&A, a social hour, the SAH Business Meeting, a pre-conference workshop, keynote talks, the annual SAH Awards Ceremony, and the SAH Montréal Seminar. Registrants receive 30-day access to watch recorded paper presentations. In addition, SAH will present a series of free roundtable discussions throughout the month of May.
