The SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group (SAH WiA AG) was organized on June 10, 2020 and is a group of members of the Society of Architectural Historians who share a common, scholarly, or other, interest aligned with the SAH mission.
.
The Mission of SAH Women in Architecture Affiliate Group is to support the breadth of interests of the SAH members, to advocate the international, national, and regional contributions of women in architecture, to champion the cause of gender equity and the diversity of professional engagements in the integral field of the built environment.
.
The Objectives of the Group are to provide a platform for collaborative scholarship and a forum for discussion; to document, support, and advance research, publication, education, and exhibition initiatives; and to integrate professional standing of women in architecture with broader studies across cultures and geographies.
.
The Guidelines are envisioned to acknowledge the vast landscapes of yet latent legacies, contexts, and perspectives, to record the largely unwritten women’s professional histories, to invite questions and debates, stimulate studies and discussions in emerging and bordering areas, and to address current work and the cultivation and empowerment of the next generation. The gravity of objectives for the group is determined by an urgency to fill the void in resources about women’s contribution to the built environment, leadership, and new trajectories of global transitions.

    The third edition of the seminary presents the results of the research «Spanish Architecture in International Media: Publications, Exhibitions, Congresses (first part: 1939-1975)», project I+D+i (HAR2017-85205-P). The main objective of this research group has been to map the presence of Spanish architectural culture abroad, during Francoism (1939-1975), through the study of the most relevant international periodical publications, exhibitions and congresses of that time, outlining a constellation of testimonies — not at all exhaustive — and sketching a history of international critique about Spanish architecture throughout this chronological period. The results of these studies represent a hypothesis of rewriting history; a history that has to be necessarily interdisciplinary, surpassing mere descriptive information and aspiring to destabilize the usual historiographic topics — like those of the «modern movement», «continuity» or «rupture» – now read from the angle of material culture.
