The Georgian Group is organising a day-long symposium on the theme of Women and Architecture, 1660–1830, which will be held at the Society of Antiquaries at Burlington House, London, on Saturday 28 September 2019. Following successful conferences run by the Group in previous years on James Gibbs and the Adam brothers, the symposium will explore how women contributed to and interacted with architecture in the period 1660–1830, including, but not limited to, the following topics:
• Building, remodelling, and the repairing of country houses, town houses, churches, almshouses, and villas
• Relationships with architects and contractors
• Architectural discourse, drawing, and design
• The creation of identity through the medium of architectural space

Proposals are invited for 15- to 30-minute papers based on original research. Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words and a copy of your CV to Dr Amy Boyington ( by the end of January 2019. Any questions regarding the symposium should be sent to the same address. Further details will be made available, and tickets will go on sale, in the spring.
