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.

    Welcome to the SAH Architectural Studies Affiliate Group page.  We look forward to connecting with colleagues who direct or teach in interdisciplinary Architectural Studies program. But we want to underline that the group is open to any SAH member who wants to learn more about the joys and challenges of these programs.

    Our goal is to create a forum that will foster wide-ranging, engaging and useful discussions.  If you have topics that you would like to see the group take up, please feel free to post them here.

    Our first big event will be at the 2021 SAH Annual Conference!  A virtual roundtable on Architectural Studies Now, Tuesday, May 11, 1-2:30PM ET.  More details to follow.  Hope to see you there!

    From the co-chairs,

    Danny Abramson
