    Welcome to the Fall 2014 edition of the VAN.  In this issue you will find some new types of articles for the newsletter that I hope you will both find useful and interesting.  VAF President Chris Wilson has written a thought-provoking piece on generational change and the future of VAF.  Because we are now publishing digitally, this piece is open for comment in an online forum, and we hope that you take advantage and join the dialogue.  If you are interested in a longer response piece to be published in an upcoming issue of the newsletter, please contact me at vaneditor@vafweb.org.

    We also have a forum section in the members only part of the web site that has replaced the listserve.  This is where you will find time-sensitive announcements like job openings, calls for papers, as well as general discussion and question threads.  I hope you will have some time to browse the topics, or add one of your own.

    One of the things that I have both heard from other VAF members and experienced myself is the value that we place on the friendliness and welcoming atmosphere at VAF conferences.  As a way to carry the fellowship of VAF members into the digital realm, the Fall 2014 newsletter introduces a short feature article called a member profile, where we can learn a bit about a member’s interests and background.  This issue highlights our new treasurer Lisa Pfueller Davidson, one of our newest board members.  In coming issues, I would love to profile more members and share the diversity of VAF, so if you have any suggestions for people to highlight, including yourself, please feel free to e-mail me.

    And finally, there is a section I am informally calling the digital corner that looks at how members can take advantage of the new resources that we have at our fingertips.  In this issue, one of our bibliographers, Zach Violette has provided a great overview of how the Zotero bibliography works, and hints on how you can use it in your own work.  And David Bergstone, the chair of the Communications Committee has written a recap of all of the wonderful functions that the new web platform provides.

    Thanks to everyone for your contributions to this issue.  I am looking forward to hearing from more members over the coming months with contributions for future newsletters, thoughts shared on the forums, and general suggestions and thoughts.

    Happy Autumn,

    Zotero primer for VAF members

    by Zach Violette

    The transition of the Vernacular Architecture Forum Bibliography to Zotero offers a number of advantages to members, particularly the new ease of access to the data, and ability to easily create automatically-formatted bibliographies and citations from it.  There are two ways to access the new VAF bibliography using Zotero, either through its Web interface (https://www.zotero.org/groups/the_vernacular_architecture_forum/items), or by downloading the standalone Zotero desktop application for free at (https://www.zotero.org/download/). If you plan on using the desktop version, you will want to join the VAF group first by visiting the Web interface and clicking “Join Group.” You will be prompted to create an account by providing an email address and password.

    Once you are a member of the group you can access the listings, search and sort them online. However, using the desktop application provides additional benefits. Zotero is a robust and high-quality Bibliographical Management Tool, and an excellent –as well as free and open-source - replacement for propriety, expensive, and increasingly antiquated tools like EndNote.  Zotero can be used to create an infinite number of bibliographies (called “collections”), both public and private. Because it is cloud-based, this data can be synced seamlessly across multiple devices. Once you’ve subscribed to a public bibliography like the VAF’s, all new listings will be automatically downloaded to your desktop (be sure to log in with the same account with which you joined the group), where you can search them, copy them into your own bibliographies, and export them in all standard citation formats.

    More detailed information on how to use Zotero can be found here: https://www.zotero.org/support/quick_start_guide.

    The website committee would like to announce that we have a new and improved page to serve the membership and potential members better.  As part of the effort to improve communication, VAF has shifted its entire web presence to a new platform hosted by Wild Apricot, vafweb.org.  This new platform provides not only easy formatting and flexibility for updates, but also allows direct electronic communications in addition to complete control of membership information, payments, and events management. After reviewing various options over the past few years, it became obvious that VAF needed a better way to communicate with members (e.g. through emails) and allow online payments. This new system allows those and other features that all integrate into a single system, making it easier for members to find whatever they need.

    With the assistance of Amber Wiley and Chad Randl, the website committee has been working on the transfer over the last couple months. The first thing you will notice is that the format has obviously been changed to a sleeker and easier to navigate structure. The new system utilizes templates which can be customized to be consistent across the website. All the navigation and formatting is generated automatically by the system and can be easily updated by adding, removing, or reorganizing pages without having to change any individual page content. Yet individual pages can be edited quickly and easily with new information. This will allow committees to directly manage their own pages and keep information updated, not only streamlining the process but also making sure the content is useful and engaging. Many pages have been updated and there is already new information on the education pages.

    Another advantage is that the new system actually maintains membership information, with members able to log in and review/correct their information. The availability of PayPal to process payments means that memberships can be paid online, with that status tracked in the member's record. Manual payments are still possible but many people are now used to paying online and even having the system automatically renew their membership annually. And the system can generate reminders automatically when a membership is about to expire. Of course donations are also able to be accepted. The committee hopes that the convenience of online access will ensure that both long-standing and new members are able to renew easily and keep active in VAF.

    A new feature that is long overdue is the ability to email all members, as you have been receiving the digital issues of VAN. VAF previously relied on the listserv to reach members but inclusion on that list was voluntary and took manual updating of membership status. That listserv is being transferred into forums on the new system, which will offer even more functionality for comments and searching for previous posts but still offer subscriptions for notification of new posts.  We can now track not only members and reach them directly, but we can also identify people as 'contacts' who are not current members but may attended a conference. We hope that this will increase our retention and encourage conference attendees to join once they see all that the organization has to offer. 

    Another feature is the ability to manage conference registrations in the system. Not only can memberships and conference registration be consolidated, there are other functions to help accept the conference payments and manage contact to registrants. This will help future conferences (both Chicago in 2015 and the Durham conference in 2016 are already planning to use the system) utilize the VAF website and reduce the complexity of hosting a conference. This will help VAF maintain records on who has attended conferences and not lose contact with those potential members if they temporarily lapse.

    We hope you will log into the new system and see some of the new features. If you go into the members only portion of the site, you can also see a current directory of members. (If a member chooses, they can opt out of having their information appear but this information only viewable by fellow paid members.)

    We hope the new site will provide more functionality to better meet the needs of our VAF members while we continue to expand and welcome new members to the organization.

    Photo Courtesy of preservationnation.orgThe National Trust for Historic Preservation recently published a terrific, visual article about the lesser known photography of Steven Gross and Susan Daley. Gross and Daly, known for their photography of historic homes, gardens and interiors, turned their lenses to the ordinary, to ‘any interesting or obsolete commercial or public buildings such as roadhouses, feed stores, dance halls, tourist cabins, small churches, or vintage barber shops’.

    The article’s photographs are wonderful, black and white shots of Southern vernacular architecture, shot using film. Gross observed,

    They appeal because of their familiar forms that have a sense of character, directness, and certainty about them. We associate them with half-forgotten truths and obscure social rituals and beliefs, as well as lost building practices and ways of doing things."

    As a long time supporter of the National Trust, its good to see the organization focus on a topic that typically gets less coverage...way to go Trust! Here is an online, short version what has photographs not included in their print version.

    The close scholarship of practice that the VAF describes as “fieldwork” underpins much of the research VAF members practice as they work through images, objects, buildings and landscapes to better understand the past. Details of construction provide clues to a building’s story, while systematic assessments of fabric and form give structure to that story. This material evidence is often presented in scaled drawings, particularly if one site is the subject of study. When a neighborhood is the subject, the buildings’ relationships to each other, within the block, and to the street become the canvas. Settlement patterns as well as specific materials, decorative features, and plans examined together lend insights into a city’s social spaces. Aerial photography and maps are keys to viewing this kind of setting. These comprehensive pictures of place can be augmented by field drawings of specific buildings that are illustrative of the larger architectural landscape.[1]

    Field research precedes the annual VAF conference and distinguishes the conference’s tour program. VAF Chicago is no exception. While the VAF now offers support for individual fieldworkers through the Ridout Fieldwork Fellowship, it is the VAF’s continued commitment to an initiative in support of fieldwork for upcoming conferences that brought several VAFers to the Windy City last summer. The fieldwork initiative pulled an impressive group together. Becky Sheppard, Director of the Center for Historic Architecture and Design (CHAD) at the University of Delaware, led the way with assistance from Gretchen Buggeln from Valparaiso University, Andrew Sandoval-Strausz from the University of New Mexico, and Arijit Sen from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

    WiFigure 1:Devon Avenueth characteristic aplomb and good humor, Becky’s team ventured into the sanctuary, synagogue and streets of several Chicago neighborhoods. Guided by Gretchen, they zigzagged north, west, and south of the “Loop,” meaning the elevated train tracks that loop through the city’s downtown and give the area its vernacular. Outside the Loop, they met on street corners on Devon Avenue, working with Arijit Sen and finding culinary treats (fig. 1). They reFigure 2: Arch over 26th Streetndezvoused with Andrew Sandoval-Strausz at the landmark Arch over Figure 3: North Lawndale26th Street in Little Village (fig. 2). They made the pilgrimage to St. Michael’s and the walk to North Lawndale (fig. 3). They convened at Wentworth Gardens, a public housing development, and recorded Meyers Ace Hardware, once home to a jazz club in Bronzeville (fig. 4) They measured storefronts and screens, altar-rails and alleys, floor plans and fencing, and tasted some of what Chicago has to offer (fig. 5). They took to the field, and their initiative will help guide the VAF next June.

    A very special thFigure 4: Wentworth Gardensank you is due to our Chicago hosts. Thanks to all for embracing the empirical side of vernacular studies and for letting us crawl over your buildings: Father Andrew Torma, Flor Hernandez, Celester Gray, Annette Jones, Ms. Harris, and Dave Meyers, as well as deep gratitude to Tamsen Anderson, Matt Cole, Bill Hinchliff, Brad Hunt, Tim Samuelson, Andrew Sandoval-Strausz, and Arijit Sen for facilitating access and coordinating efforts in advance of the team’s arrival.

    VAF Chicago also acknowledges with appreciation the lodging providFigure 5: Little Villageed during the fieldwork initiative by Gretchen Buggeln and through Roosevelt University.

    And, in closing, an immeasurable thank you is due to VAFers Gretchen Buggeln, Michael Emmons, Meg Hutchins, Travis Olson, Cate Morrissey, Emily Royer, Andrew Sandoval-Strausz, Amy Schachman, Arijit Sen, and Becky Sheppard for going in the field and Out of the Loop. Their fieldwork is a signature of the VAF and a hallmark for VAF Chicago. 

    [1] This introduction to fieldwork was taken from https://www.vafweb.org/Fieldwork-Training to provide a context for the fieldwork done for VAF Chicago by VAFers from the University of Delaware and Valparaiso University in addition to that done by Arijit Sen on Devon Avenue and Andrew Sandoval-Strausz in Little Village.

    Lisa Davidson at VAF Conference 2014by Lisa Pfueller Davidson

    I am happy to be serving as the new VAF treasurer, and daunted to be following in Don Linebaugh's very capable footsteps.  VAF plays a key role in my professional development and network, so I felt it was important to do my part in helping run the organization.

    My VAF initiation was the 1998 annual meeting in Annapolis, where I was the recipient of a student fellowship.  A number of us were encouraged to get involved by Orlando Ridout while taking his field methods class at George Washington University.  As he promised, I was hooked.  Dinner in the late 18th century orangery at Wye House was just the first of many unique experiences I feel fortunate to have had at VAF conferences. 

    I also value VAF's ability to bring together a healthy mix of academics, preservationists, and public historians.  I have been a National Park Service historian in various capacities since 1995 and a staff historian with the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) since 2001.  Being involved with VAF gives me opportunities to stay in touch with colleagues doing all sorts of grounded and engaging work on the built environment.  VAF has given me an important venue to share my work on topics as varied as billboards, hotels, or cranberry bogs.  

    I first served as a board member from 2007-2010, working on committees such as the Buchanan Award and serving as a paper session chair at several conferences.  I also worked on the planning committee for the 2010 VAF conference in Washington, DC during this period.  In returning to the board as treasurer, I bring the experience of being budget officer for the 2010 conference and a willingness to learn more about non-profit financial management.  Please let me know if you have suggestions regarding how we can all continue to keep VAF on a sound financial footing and plan for a vibrant future. treasurer@vafweb.org

    Pamela H. Simpson Presenter’s Fellowship: Deadline January 1, 2015

    Since 1989, the VAF Board of Directors has allocated funding for financial assistance to students and young professionals presenting papers at VAF annual conferences. Awards are intended to offset conference and travel cost for students, and to attract developing scholars to the organization. In 2015, the annual conference will be held in Chicago, June 3-7, 2015.

    In memory of Pamela H. Simpson, whose commitment to mentoring young scholars touched the lives of numerous students and colleagues, the VAF Board of Directors has renamed the Annual Presenter’s Fellowships the Pamela H. Simpson Presenter’s Fellowships.

    The application deadline for the 2015 Simpson Fellowship is January 1, 2015. For a full description of eligibility and application procedures please click here.

    Ambassador Awards: Deadline February 1, 2015

    The VAF Ambassadors Awards provide funding for student groups (undergraduate and graduate) from North American institutions, with a faculty sponsor, to attend VAF's annual conference which will be held in Chicago, June 3-7, 2015.

    We hope through this program to enhance the VAF's recruitment of students, to diversify the membership and interest in the work of the VAF, to provide support to programs that teach vernacular architecture, and to increase the VAF's visibility on campuses. 

    The application deadline for the 2015 Ambassador Award is February 1, 2015.  For a full description of eligibility and application procedures please click here.


    Paul E. Buchanan Award: Deadline February 15, 2015

    The Paul E. Buchanan Award was instituted by VAF in 1993 to recognize contributions to the study and preservation of vernacular architecture and the cultural landscape that do not take the form of books or published work.  Hundreds of studies, reports, documentation projects, restoration plans, National Register nominations, exhibits, video/digital media productions and public programs are completed each year without the benefit of distribution or recognition beyond the limited audience for which they were commissioned.  Nonetheless, many of these efforts can serve to inform and inspire us all.  The award is named for Paul E. Buchanan who served for over thirty years as the Director of Architectural Research at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Buchanan set the standard for architectural fieldwork in America and inspired many VAF members in the rewards of fieldwork. This award honors the valuable work that most of our members and professional associates perform.

    The application deadline for the 2015 Buchanan Award is February 15, 2015.  For a full description of eligibility and application procedures please click here.

    Catherine W. Bishir Prize: Deadline December 15, 2014

    The Bishir Prize, named for longtime members and influential scholar Catherine W. Bishir, is awarded annually to the scholarly article from a juried North American publication that has made the most significant contribution to the study of vernacular architecture and cultural landscapes. In judging the nominated articles, the jurors look for an article that is based on primary research, that breaks new ground in interpretation or methodology, and that contributes generally to the intellectual vitality of vernacular studies. Entries may come from any discipline concerned with vernacular architecture studies. Articles published in the two years prior to the VAF annual conference are eligible for consideration.

    For a full description of eligibility and application procedures please click here.


    Award for Advocacy

    The Vernacular Architecture Forum encourages and supports citizen efforts to protect our vernacular built heritage. The protection and preservation of our vernacular built heritage depends on good stewardship by property owners supported by sound government land use policies. However, the long-term preservation of our cultural heritage is rarely achieved without the support of a well-informed, involved citizenry.

    The VAF seeks to encourage citizen-based advocacy by recognizing exemplary efforts and achievements on behalf of our vernacular built heritage. The VAF Award for Advocacy honors individuals and groups for exceptional contributions toward the appreciation and protection of vernacular buildings and landscapes. The award recognizes outstanding initiative, commitment, and action to promote and protect vernacular resources. The award may be made in recognition of a specific advocacy effort, or on the basis of the nominee's long-term record of advocacy.
