“Queen City Crusade” – Join the Society for Commercial Archeology’s (SCA) conference in Cincinnati, Ohio from October 4-7, 2017. The three-day conference includes two days of motorcoach tours with a day of paper sessions. One tour will stop at some of Cincinnati’s iconic spots and end at the American Sign Museum for a special dinner celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the SCA. The second bus tour will follow the route of the historic Dixie Highway up to Lima, before concluding with dinner at Mecklenburg Gardens. 

Call for Papers

The Society for Commercial Archeology seeks proposals for its Cincinnati conference day of paper sessions on Friday, October 6, 2017. The SCA welcomes proposals from presenters eager to share their investigations into the history and architecture of the American roadside with a diverse audience of preservationists, stewards, academics, writers, photographers, and others with an interest in commercial archaeology.

Individuals are encouraged to submit abstracts on topics exploring Midwestern roadside architecture, with a focus on the Cincinnati area, Mid-Century Modern commercial architecture, and preservation strategies for historic roadside architecture (restaurants, gas stations and motels) and tourism sites. Any topics related to the 20th century commercial landscape are welcome. We will consider proposals for themed sessions consisting of multiple presentations. Paper presentations are 20 minutes maximum accompanied by digital slides. Submit a paper proposal to share your knowledge with other passionate American roadside aficionados.

Emerging Professionals Lightning Talks  

New for the 2017 conference! The SCA welcomes proposals from current students, recent graduates, and emerging professionals for lightning talks. These presentations will be shorter in length (10 minutes maximum) and provide an opportunity for new scholars and professionals to share their research and knowledge, while learning more about the SCA.

Proposal Requirements


To propose a conference presentation, please submit an abstract of no more than
250 words and the following:

Title of presentation 

Name, title, and occupation of speaker(s)
Mailing address and telephone number
Email address
Brief resume or curriculum vitae (no more than 1 page required)
Please note if you are submitting a lightning talk.

More than one abstract may be submitted.  Please follow the two guiding principles in making a presentation at an SCA conference: make it visual and make it fun!

Any individual interested in commercial archeology may participate in SCA
conferences. Those accepted to present a paper session or lightning talk will be required to register for the conference; unfortunately the SCA is unable to pay stipends or travel expenses of presenters. Previous membership in SCA is not required to attend the conference.

Abstracts must be received by April 15, 2017. Submit abstracts via e-mail to main@sca-roadside.org with the subject line “Cincinnati Paper Session Proposal.”

Presenters will be notified by June 30, 2017 if their proposal has been accepted. Don’t miss the fun in Cincinnati this October. Conference registration information will be available at sca-roadside.org this spring.
