The Vernacular Architecture Forum (VAF) is soliciting nominations for its 2017 Bishir Prize. The Bishir Prize is awarded annually to the scholarly article from a juried North American publication that has made the most significant contribution to the study of vernacular architecture and cultural landscapes. Work published as a chapter in a book is eligible along with journal articles. Nominated articles should be based on primary research, break significant new ground in interpretation or methodology, and contribute to the intellectual vitality of vernacular studies. Entries may come from any discipline concerned with investigating vernacular architecture/landscape. Nominated pieces must bear the publication imprint of 2016 or 2017.

Deadline for submission is February 1, 2018.

To submit, send an electronic copy of the work to the prize committee:

Elizabeth Collins Cromley (e.c.cromley@gmail.com)
Joseph Sciorra (joseph.sciorra@qc.cuny.edu)
Richard Longstreth, chair (rwl@gwu.edu)

Please provide the author’s contact information along with your own.

Note that the committee automatically considered all refereed articles appearing in the VAF’s journal, Buildings + Landscapes.

The prize winner and nominator will be notified in early March. The award will be presented at the Vernacular Architecture Forum annual meeting in early May, 2018.

Please direct questions to Elizabeth Collins Cromley (e.c.cromley@gmail.com).
