Pevsner's The Buildings of England
50TH ANNIVERSARY CONFERENCE

Organised by the Victoria & Albert Museum in association with the Pevsner
Architectural Guides and the Buildings Books Trust 
Friday 13th July and Saturday 14th July 2001

This conference marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of the first
volumes of Sir Nikolaus Pevsner's authoritative series of architectural
guides, The Buildings of England. The first day explores the wider context
for Pevsner's contribution to British culture, in particular architectural
and topographical writing in Britain before Pevsner and its further
development from the 1930s to the 1950s, Pevsner's approach to art history,
his German background, and the formation of his ideas about Englishness. The
second day looks more closely at Pevsner's achievement, from the viewpoint
of publishing history and the preservation of historic buildings. Other
speakers will report on the very different challenges of writing about the
buildings of three other nations of the British Isles, and those of the
United States, and on the writing of Pevsner's own biography. The convenor
on both days is Francis Pugh of the museum's Department of Learning and
Visitor Services.
