New Light on Vernacular Architecture: Studies in Britain, Ireland and the Isle of Man

International Conference, Douglas, Isle of Man, 22-25 June 2011

Due to the success of the first call for papers, which saw submissions from all over the British Isles, Australia, Malaysia and the US, the Conference committee is pleased to announce a second call for papers and posters, with a deadline of 31st January 2011.

The conference organisers would welcome papers and posters on all aspects of vernacular architecture from within the British Isles, particularly those exploring new directions, interpretations and approaches to the subject. Submissions that discuss new approaches and methodologies to the study of vernacular architecture elsewhere are also welcome. The second call for papers and posters, and further details about the conference, including details of session themes and panel discussions, can be found on the conference website. Further details about the conference will be added here in due course.

Keynote speakers at the conference will be:
· Prof. Henry Glassie (College Professor Emeritus of Folklore, Indiana University, Bloomington);
· Dr Marcel Vellinga (Director of the International Vernacular Architecture Unit at Oxford Brookes University); and
· Dr Eurwyn Wiliam (Chairman of the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales).

The conference organisers are also pleased to announce that Dr R. W. Brunskill, the doyen of British vernacular architecture, will also be speaking at the conference.

Any enquiries can be directed to Dr Catriona Mackie or at 01624 695 777.
