Construction History Society - Call for Papers

The Construction History Society of America announces its second meeting to be held on May 20-22, 2010 at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. A broad theme has been adopted to encourage a wide range of papers on the subject of construction history in the Americas.

CHSA was formed in 2007 in response to a growing level of interest among academics and practitioners in the subject. The association operates as a branch of the Construction History Society of the UK and maintains links with other international societies.

Call for Papers and Sessions Papers: Authors interested in presenting a paper at the meeting are invited to submit an abstract (250 – 400 words) by January 29, 2010. The submittal must include full contact details (name, degree, affiliation, address, telephone and e-mail). It should be sent by e-mail as a PDF to chs@coa.gatech.edu

Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and authors will be notified by February 15, 2010. Presentation materials will be required by April 30, 2010.

Sessions: Those wishing to organize a session around a selected theme are invited to submit an outline of the subject listing no more than three proposed speakers, their topics and full contact details including those of the session chair. This submittal shall be sent by e-mail as a PDF to chs@coa.gatech.edu by January16, 2010. Further information may be requested by the Program Committee and final advice will be given concerning acceptance or otherwise by February 15, 2010. Presentation materials will be required by April 30, 2010.

Topic Guidance:
The Program Committee wishes to encourage a broad range of papers dealing with any aspect of construction history. However preference will be given to abstracts focused on the urban development of nineteenth and early twentieth century American cities. This includes not only the physical results (infrastructure and building) but also the processes used in their development. Subjects dealing with Canadian, Mexican and at other Latin American locations will be welcomed.

The Committee recognizes that many of our members have interests in construction history that extend beyond the Americas. Papers or sessions on such subjects will be considered, but priority will be given to those devoted to American subjects.

Presenters will be expected to register for the conference at a reduced rate and no assistance can be extended for travel and other expenses.

Student Stipends:
CHSA intends to raise sponsorship for students to assist with travel, registration and other expenses and students are therefore encouraged to submit abstracts.
