The AHA welcomes the Construction History Society of America as its newest Affiliated Society.

Our new affiliate has the following statement of purpose:

The Construction History Society of America is dedicated to the study of the history and evolution of all aspects of the built environment—its creation, maintenance, and management. It is a forum for scholars and professionals in the field to share, meet, and exchange ideas and research. Membership is open to a wide range of construction-related disciplines involved in the planning, development, design, and construction of buildings and engineering infrastructure, in addition to those concerned with their operation and preservation. Members share a passion for examining how our existing structures were planned, designed and built, with the purpose of using this knowledge to better preserve what we have and to guide us in determining future directions.

The U.S. branch of the Construction History Society is a distinct entity catering to the historical studies and interests of its members here in America. Membership in the U.S. branch includes full benefits in CHS at large, including receipt of the society’s Journal and newsletter and links to scholars in the field worldwide.

Other recently added affiliates include:  the Toynbee Prize Foundation and the National Coalition of Independent Scholars.

Organizations that are interested in becoming affiliates of the AHA should go online here for more information and an application (PDF).
