Architectural Histories: The Open Access Journal of the EAHN

Since its inception, one of the main aims of the EAHN has been to launch a peer-reviewed journal to foster architectural history scholarship in Europe and beyond. Thanks to a generous three-year grant from the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO) in 2012, this ambition is now being realized.

Architectural Histories is the open access, blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the EAHN that creates a space where historically grounded research into all aspects of architecture and the built environment can be made public, consulted, and discussed. The journal is open to historical, historiographic, theoretical, and critical contributions that engage with architecture and the built environment from a historical perspective.

The call for contributions for the first issues went out in 2012, and first and second issues were launched in summer and fall 2013. From 2015, Architectural Histories will be financed by author contributions and will thus be a financially self-sufficient enterprise. EAHN members will be able to publish at a reduced rate.

Journal News & Editorial Notices

Call for Abstracts / Special Collection on Digital Architectural History

Architectural Histories, in collaboration with ETH Zürich, invites paper abstracts for a special themed issue on Digital Architectural History.

The journal intends to offer a platform for articles that explore what a durable and truly digital architectural history could look like. Such history activates various forms of digital visualization, data collection and management, and digital research tools; it questions how these new means affect and shape the work of the historian; and it examines how this work is made available for assessment, consultation and debate. The aim of the issue is to arrive at accessible, sustainable and potentially interactive results that open up new critical perspectives in architectural history.

For more details, please download the full Call for Abstracts. Deadline for submissions is 1 October 2017.

Call for Applications /  Reviews Editor (pre-1800)

The Editorial Board of Architectural Histories seeks to appoint a Reviews Editor for publications and other research-based outputs covering the history of architecture and the built environment before 1800.

The Reviews Editor is responsible for commissioning, developing and editing reviews.  Architectural Histories aims to publish reviews which respond to the latest releases in the field and to widen the traditional scope of reviews, to include recent exhibitions and conferences relevant to histories of architecture.

The ideal candidate is well connected with scholars working on all aspects of pre-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 pre-1800 architectural history regardless of background, discipline or seniority. Applications from scholars working outside the traditional centers of scholarship are strongly encouraged.

For more details about the role and how to apply, download the full Call for Applications here.

The deadline for applications is 31 August 2017.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
