Abstracts or proposals for papers or work-in-progress reports are solicited for the 2017 annual meeting of the Marion Dean Ross/Pacific Northwest Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians. The meeting this year will be held June 16-18, 2017, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. This year's theme is "Commemorations." According to the National Park Service, a commemorative property is important not for association with the event or person it memorializes, but for the significance it has acquired after its creation through age, tradition, or symbolic value. Please join us in Victoria, B.C., June 16-18, 2017, to celebrate commemorations, especially the Canada 150 celebrations (1867-2017), the 100th anniversary of the US  National Park System (2016), the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (2016), and the Parks Canada's Centennial (2011). We will also be recognizing Victoria's Centennial (1962) by reflecting on the on-going significance of Victoria's 1965 Centennial Square. Topics germane to the theme will be encouraged, but those covering any aspect of the built environment of the Pacific Northwest or beyond will be welcome. Abstracts will be blind peer-reviewed by the SAHMDR Review Committee. Membership in the SAHMDR is not required for abstract submission, although those chosen for presentation will be asked to contribute chapter dues for the current year. Graduate students and
advanced undergraduates in fields related to the built environment are particularly welcome.

Submission Guidelines:
The abstract should be no more than 300 words and should fit onto a single-sided page. A single separate page should include the author's name, address, telephone number, and e-
mail address with a brief, 100-200 word paragraph biography or one-page curriculum vitae. Indicate in your abstract whether you intend to deliver a twenty-minute paper or a ten-minute work-in-progress report. Ideally, submissions should be analytical or critical in nature, rather than descriptive, and aim to make an original contribution. Electronic submission of proposals is preferred. Abstracts are due on or before March 15, 2017, and authors of papers chosen for presentation will be notified by April 15, 2017. Completed manuscripts of accepted papers must be submitted in full to conference organizers by June 1, 2017. Authors shall retain copyright, but will agree that the paper can be deposited for scholarly use in the chapter archive in the Special Collections & University Archives, University of Oregon Libraries. Email submissions as a Word attachment with the subject heading SAHMDR 2017 on or before March 15, 2017, to Amanda Clark at sahmdr2017 at gmail.com. If you are unable to send your submission electronically, please send it via regular mail to: Amanda C. R. Clark, MLIS, Ph.D. Director of the Library & Assistant Professor in Art, Whitworth University, 300 W. Hawthorne Road, Spokane, WA 99251
