2012 Meeting of the Vernacular Architecture Forum (VAF)

Madison, Wisconsin

June 6-10, 2012

With the theme

"Nature + City: Vernacular Buildings & Landscapes of the Upper
Midwest," the annual meeting of the Vernacular Architecture Forum will be
based on Madison, Wisconsin – the site of the state Capitol and Wisconsin’s
flagship University. The conference will kick off on Wednesday evening,
June 6th, with a keynote lecture by William Cronon, Frederick Jackson Turner
and Vilas Research Professor of History, Geography, and Environmental Studies
at the recently-restored Majestic Theater. The heart of the conference will
take place on June 7 and 8 (Thursday and Friday) with two all-day field tours.
These tours will tell the story of southwestern and south-central Wisconsin—a
region that has linked the rural hinterlands to the city of Madison as its
center over the past 180 years. The focus on Saturday will be a day of
papers and roundtables, capped off by a closing banquet at the University of Wisconsin’s
Student Union.
