Architectural Histories, the open-access journal of the European Architectural History Network (EAHN), is now online and open to submissions. Architectural Histories is an international, blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal 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. Original contributions of the highest quality, including scholarly articles, position papers, and shorter pieces addressing topical issues in European Architectural History, are welcome from scholars and critics in all stages of their career. The journal especially encourages contributions that stimulate reflection and dialogue about the place of history and historical research within the varied and multifaceted ways in which architecture and the built environment are studied and debated today, across disciplines, cultures and regions. More information, guidelines, and submission module. Questions and queries may be addressed to the editor-in-chief, Maarten Delbeke. Submissions ongoing.
