This is one of four parallel sessions taking place from 11:35 AM - 12:50 PM on Thursday June 2.
Speakers have been asked to pre-record their presentations and we will be releasing these videos to registrants after the Symposium so that you can watch sessions you weren't able to attend.
Documenting Women in Architecture
Architecture is a profession historically dominated by men, and the substantial contributions of female architects are frequently obscured. As a result, contemporary scholars interested in their work have had to confront misattributions as well as a lack of archival resources and existing scholarship on their subjects. This session explores the efforts of three architectural historians as they write women back into the history of the built environment and architectural education, addressing themes of preservation, legacy, and storytelling.
