Call for Papers: Seasoned Modernism, Prudent Perspectives on an Unwary Past. Studies in History and Theory of Architecture journal

The journal of studies in History and Theory of Architecture (sita.uauim.ro), published by the Department of Architectural History & Theory and Heritage Conservation at “Ion Mincu” University of Architecture and Urbanism in Bucharest, Romania, invites international submissions for the 2019 issue: Seasoned Modernism, Prudent Perspectives on an Unwary Past.
Modernism has already become history. Commemorations such as the Bauhaus Centennial make it seem old, while, following the triumphant claims to its demise at the end of the 20th century, it could appear worn out. Yet, Modernism may very well be a decisive period of architecture’s professional history, as its ramifications into the contemporary building culture could prove more powerful than expected.
Which Modernism is dead? Which one is alive? What should better be forgotten and what should be furthered?
The full Call for Papers with the ouline of the possible topics for contributions and the instructions for the authors is available here.
A preliminary abstract of 200 – 250 words should be submitted by 15 March 2019. Selected contributors will be notified by e-mail on March 22. The final article should be submitted for review by 1 June 2019. Contributions will undergo a double-blind peer review procedure.
All correspondence will be addressed to sita@uauim.ro, to the attention of Dr. Arch. Toader Popescu (managing editor of the current issue).
