Welcome to the Spring 2019 issue of VAN. Feel free to use that link if you just want to scroll through all the stories directly on the website. This is an exciting issue packed with great information you won’t want to miss!
Featured in this issue is the upcoming annual meeting “Landscapes of Succession” in Philadelphia May 29-June 1—registration closes this week. Other opportunities include updates to the Field Schools page on our website from the University of Oregon, as well as a workshop on wooden churches in Ukraine and a symposium at UVA.
Members have been very busy in the field in the past few months, with a report from a 2018 Ridout recipient Alyssa Kreikemeier on work in Utah. Members have also shared wonderful news of publications, photography exhibits, and work on analyzing historic photos of vanished vernacular landscapes. To round out the issue is the Spring Bibliography is packed with useful resources that span the disciplines that contribute to vernacular architecture studies.
