Call for applications: book reviews editor for Architectural Histories, the open access journal of the EAHN
Architectural Histories is the online open access journal of the EAHN, published by Ubiquity Press. The Editorial Board of Architectural Histories seeks to appoint a Book Reviews Editor for publications covering the history of architecture and the built environment after 1800.
The Editor is responsible for commissioning, developing and editing book reviews for the journal. Architectural Histories publishes review essays that typically combine critiques of two or more books, exhibitions, conferences etc pertaining to a topic that is relevant to the field. In close collaboration with the Editor-in-Chief, the Book Review Editor selects the publications or themes for review essays, and invites reviewers. After commission, the Editor follows up on the writing and editing of the review, up to the point where it is ready for final copy-editing. The Editor is expected to deliver 2 to 3 essays per year.
The ideal candidate is well connected with scholars working on all aspects of post-1800 architecture, and closely monitors the state of the field, with an eye to commissioning reviews that will stand out as lasting contributions to historical and historiographical debate. The Editor should be familiar with good practice in the commissioning and editing of reviews.
This call is open to all scholars working on topics related to post-1800 architectural history regardless of background, discipline or seniority. Indeed, applications from scholars working outside the traditional centers of scholarship are strongly encouraged. Applications should consist of a CV (max. 3 pages) and a cover letter specifying the candidate’s appropriate skills and qualities. Applications should be emailed to Petra Brouwer, Editor-in-Chief (firstname.lastname@example.org), and received no later than 31st March 2017. The new Editor will be appointed on 1st May 2017 for a four-year term.
