Cfp: Studies in History and Theory of Architecture journal: Marginalia. Limits within the Urban Realm.

Call for Papers: Studies in History and Theory of Architecture journal: Marginalia. Limits within the Urban Realm.

The journal studies in History and Theory of Architecture, published by the Department of Architectural History & Theory and Heritage Conservation at “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism in Bucharest, Romania, invites submissions for the 2017 issue Marginalia. Limits within the Urban Realm.
Continuing the explorations initiated in the 4th volume, this issue invites contributors to undertake an enquiry on the idea of limits in intimate relation with the urban realm. Were they boundaries, expansions extra muros, or delineations intra muros, places of difference, of intermediacy, of conflicts and of negotiations, limits appear to have always been the defining feature of any place with a name.
Contributors are invited to examine cities from the perspective of the various margins that coexist or collide within their territories, focusing on the role that architecture plays or has played in relation to these limits.
A preliminary abstract of 150 – 200 words should be submitted by 24th March 2017. Selected contributors will be notified by e-mail on April 5. The final article should be submitted for review by June 1.
The call for papers can be accessed here.
Contributions will undergo a double-blind peer review procedure by independent reviewers. All correspondence should be addressed to sita@uauim.ro, to the attention of Dr. Arch. Ilinca Păun-Constantinescu. Please see detailed guidelines for authors at sita.uauim.ro.
