ATCH Postdoc Macarena de la Vega awarded the David Saunders Founders Grant 2019

Friday, 12 July 2019

At the SAHANZ Annual General Meeting, held at the 2019 SAHANZ Conference Distance Looks Back, former President Naomi Stead announced that Macarena de la Vega de Leon had been awarded the grant for her project entitled 'The Mental Life of the Architectural Historians of Australia and New Zealand,' which is proposed to be an oral history of the past fifteen years in the life of SAHANZ, since the publication of Julia Gatley's historical account, "SAHANZ: The First 20 Years, 1984-2004." Macarena proposes to travel throughout Australia and New Zealand, interviewing selected longstanding members of the Society, and present the findings at the 2020 SAHANZ conference, and hopefully also as a SAHANZ book.
