    Architectural History Student Symposium

    Aaron Westre Sep 16 '06 2

    I'm at the first annual student symposium, sponsored by the Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians. It's more interesting than it sounds. There are talks on pattern books, vedic influence on modern Indian architecture, art deco in the Twin Cities, the architecture of White Castle... and a lot more.

    Student work is usually rather invisible. People get a grade in a history seminar for a paper they've spent months on, then no one ever sees it again. It's great to be able to see and hear some of the rigorous and innovative work that that students are doing all the time.

      Smokety: The society of architectural historians, as you could imagine, are not exactly on top of the internet thing. Their website (http://www.mnsah.org/) hasn't been updated since 2003. However, I have one of the folks in charge for a professor this semester, so I'm going to bug him about putting the papers and slides online. If that happens I'll post it here.
