Call for Papers: On Margins: Feminist Architectural Histories of Migration. ABE Journal – Architecture Beyond Europe
ABE Journal – Architecture Beyond Europe is accepting paper submissions for Issue 14, 2018: ‘On Margins: Feminist Architectural Histories of Migration’, guest edited by Rachel Lee, LMU Munich (Germany), and Anooradha Iyer Siddiqi, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA (United States).
This project works in concert with a growing body of initiatives to write feminist histories of modern architecture through collaborative and intersectional historiographic practices: which redistribute power, co-produce solidarity, and reassess the objects and methods of architectural history. We begin by posing two arguments to architectural historians: first, that the dynamic of a situated and re-situated perspective is foundational to feminist histories of architecture, and second, that feminist historiographical approaches destabilize presumptions of fixity at the heart of the discipline. With the goal of opening the historiography to narratives, perspectives, and practices based on these arguments, we seek histories that employ feminist methods or gather empirical studies of women’s work that emerged from acts and experiences of migration performed individually or collectively—into and out of geographies of control and subjugation, beyond gender or gender framings, across lifeworlds.
The full synopsis of this call for papers is available here.
‪Please send submissions to abe@inha.fr by 1 July 2018.
