#EAHN2020



 

Guest editors: Alona Nitzan-Shiftan and Nancy Stieber

Special Collection launched: 13 June 2018

This collection explores the inextricable ties between knowledge and geopolitics, asking what is the role that the idea, legacy and institutions of Europe play within the new distributions of global power, and how it currently affects the production of architectural knowledge. Authors were asked: first, to probe the relationship between the geopolitics of disciplinary organizations and the creation and dissemination of knowledge in our field; second, to locate ‘Europe’—the hitherto primary site of architectural historiography—within the shifting geographies of architectural narratives; and third, to question the position of ‘Europe’ in the geopolitics of academia.

Following an editorial that introduces the issues at stake, field notes present a roundtable discussion of 1) the historiography of European architectural history in the aftermath of the former Three Worlds and 2) the institutional perspective on the ‘European’ designation of the EAHN. Four position papers follow. The first questions the epistemological position underlying the roundtable, suggesting an alternative historiography. Thereafter, in the light of European identity, three authors present specific historical case studies in the East Bloc, Turkey, and South Africa respectively. Each of these papers challenges the assumption of a diminishing European power by invoking the ways in which the idea of Europe continues to live in people’s imagination.

Architectural Histories invites applications for two new members to join its Editorial Board, one specialising in the Global South and another in pre-sixteenth century architecture. Members of the Editorial Board work with the Editor-in-Chief to guide potential contributions, from submission through peer review and copy-editing stages of publication. Members thus carry considerable responsibility for the content and quality of the Journal.

The Board, in keeping with the European Architectural History Network’s mission, also develops the strategy and vision of the Journal, maintaining its disciplinary, thematic and geographic diversity and outreach whilst upholding scholarly excellence and integrity. Members should be available and committed, and willing to devote considerable time to the Journal. They should be well connected in their field(s) of expertise and are expected to seek out and solicit contributions from their various academic networks.

The call for applications is open to all EAHN members regardless of background, discipline or seniority. Applications should consist of a CV (max. 3 pages) and a cover letter specifying the candidate’s skills and qualities.

Applications should be emailed to Petra Brouwer, Editor-in-Chief (editor-in-chief@journal.eahn.org), and received no later than 1 November 2018. The new members will be appointed on 1 January 2019 for a four-year term.
