Dear Friend,

THAAP is a forum of academics and professionals dedicated to improving the state of education, particularly in the field of Arts, Architecture and Culture. Friends and colleagues made THAAP Conferences 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 successful and now, I am happy to announce the launch of THAAP Conference 2015. With your contributions I am sure this too will be a great success.

THAAP has organized five international conferences, various talks, evening series and cultural events from year 2010 onwards. First Thaap Conference 2010, titled ‘Historiography of Architecture in Pakistan and the Region’ projected various viewpoints in the writing of history. A consensus developed that history acquires a meaning for the people if written from their perspective. Second Thaap Conference 2011 on ‘Portrait of Lahore: Capital City of the Punjab’ projected the city as an integrated human endeavor. Third Thaap Conference 2012 on ‘Life in Small Towns’ studied various small towns from all over the world in which life becomes the focal point of any composite and meaningful study of towns. Fourth Thaap Conference 2013 on ‘Cultural Roots of Art and Architecture of the Punjab’ explored different dimensions of the sub-continental Punjab to resolve the identity crisis we are in today as Punjabis. Fifth THAAP Conference 2014 focused on exploring the ‘Culture, Art and Architecture of the Marginalized and the Poor’. This year Sixth THAAP Conference 2015 sets out to shed light on ‘People’s History of Pakistan’. Please see the attached Call for Paper for details.

All interested scholars are invited to participate and write a paper. We welcome contributions from all over the world. We learn from each other.

Kindly email us 300-word abstract of your paper by APRIL 15, 2015. A confirmation email will be sent to you when we receive your abstract. If you do not get the confirmation email within a week of sending your abstract, please assume that we have not received your abstract and send us the abstract again.

The Paper Selection Committee will inform the selected paper readers by May 01, 2015. The full paper will be due by September 30, 2015.

Travel costs of selected paper readers (Economy Class Fare from point of origin to Lahore and return) and local hospitality will be provided during the conference.

Looking forward for your active participation in THAAP Conference 2015.
