Architectural Studies is a growing component of the undergraduate liberal arts curricula at many colleges and universities, generally those that do not offer pre-professional architectural education. Often housed in an art history department and directed by an architectural historian, Architectural Studies programs generally feature an interdisciplinary major and/or minor capable of providing students with a range of critical perspectives on the built environment, as well as preparation for professional graduate study. The SAH Architectural Studies Affiliate Group provides opportunities for SAH members associated with and interested in Architectural Studies programs to discuss the institutional and pedagogical challenges unique to these programs.

    SAH Archipedia: Women in Architecture Series

    \” As part of the SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group’s annual program, “March 2022: Celebrating Women’s History Month,” SAH Archipedia editors and the SAH WiA AG are pleased to announce the publication of the Women in Architecture Series in SAH Archipedia. This collaborative publication project highlights the work of women architects and significant sites in women’s history.

    The series features a wide selection, from the properties of African American pioneer Cora Cox and building contractor Elizabeth Warren to the work of modernist architects like Amaza Lee Meredith. The collection explores technological achievements and design as well as momentous events like the birthplace of the women’s rights movement and labor strikes by immigrant women. In addition to building entries, there are also new thematic essays on the work of Louise Bethune, Armena Louise Morse Eller, Ruth Reynolds Freeman, Theodate Pope Riddle, and Elizabeth Roberts. \”
