Announcing the next cycle of the GAHTC, and six new research grant opportunities

The goal of this cycle to promote interdisciplinary exchange amongst scholars of all ranks, the research of emerging scholars, as well as field visits for the production of new and innovative research.

The Global Architectural History Teaching Collaborative announces the launch of its next cycle of funding, research, and collaborative exchange based on its recent award of $1.5 million from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This cycle includes an annual Member’s Conference, Teacher-to-Teacher Workshops, as well as a new grant program to promote the development of survey course material in the global history of architecture.

GAHTC will dedicate nearly $500,000 in funding to building new content through a multi-pronged plan towards research and professional expansion. To that end, GAHTC2 is pleased to announce six new grant funding opportunities: 

            • Targeted Acquisition Grants

            • Untargeted Field-initiated Grants

            • Emerging Scholar Grants

            • Global Connections Fellowships

            • Research-to-Teaching Grants, in affiliation with SAH

            • Field Seminar Travel Grants, in affiliation with SAH

This second phase of the GAHTC will continue to help teachers of architectural history meet the pressing realities of a global perspective by funding teams of scholars to build upon nearly 200 existing lectures in our free online library. GAHTC will continue to expand its library in the next years with the aim to further enhance teaching capacity and collect innovative research. 

The GAHTC is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, with administrative connection to Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the School of Architecture and Planning and its History Theory and Criticism Program.
