AHRA Regional Groups

AHRA is pursuing a broad range of opportunities to advance the cause of humanities research in architecture. This includes encouraging cooperative links between researchers through regional network activities.

The first regional event to take place under the AHRA banner was a research forum for PhD students at the University of Sheffield in October 2004. This event was instigated by a doctoral researcher at the Sheffield School of Architecture and provided an opportunity for PhD students in the region to meet and present work-in-progress. This kind of mutually supportive activity is important to the future growth and success of humanities research in architecture and AHRA would like to encourage other similar initiatives from PhD students in other geographical areas.

If you have ideas for similar events and would like the support of AHRA - for instance in approaching potential keynote speakers or publicising an event - please contact one of the coordinators by sending a message via the links below:
