    DEADLINE – November 15, 2023
    The Vernacular Architecture Forum invites paper and poster proposals for its 45th Annual Conference, June 12 to June 15, 2024 in Keweenaw, Michigan. The paper and poster sessions will be on Saturday, June 15th. Papers may address topics relating to vernacular and everyday buildings, sites, or cultural landscapes worldwide and how people use these sites. This includes research projects that continue the VAF's commitment to material evidence in support of humanistic argumentation. We welcome twenty-minute presentations focusing on issues including, but not limited to, migration, displacement, de/colonialism, segregation, resistance, gender, sexuality, identity, heritage, equity, and justice in the everyday built environment. We also encourage papers that explore new methodologies for researching vernacular architecture and new pedagogies for involving students in the analysis of everyday buildings and cultural landscapes. Research topics that engage with the cultural landscapes of Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the Upper Midwest, including associated themes of mining, industrial labor, indigeneity, territoriality, and post-industrial development, are also welcome.
