SAHGB Student Lightning Rounds:
Visual Representation in Architectural History

Join the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain for an afternoon exploring architectural history through alternative media and methodologies. From Minecraft to cartography and film, post-graduate researchers will share their work in short presentations followed by discussion with a panel of critics including architectural historians Neil Jackson, Alan Dunlop and David Nicholson-Cole.

Media:
The 7 May lightning round session seeks to explore research presentation and the ways in which varying technologies and modes of representation can themselves be the product of research. Our speakers will explore logistical media, collage and minecraft as new media for architectural research.
