Architectural Histories seeks three new members to join its Editorial Board
Architectural Histories, the online open access journal of the EAHN, invites applications to join its Editorial Board in January 2017 for a 3-year term.
The Editorial Board develops the strategy, content, and vision of the journal, guarantees its disciplinary, thematic, and geographic diversity and outreach as well as its scholarly excellence and integrity, in close concert with the EAHN.
Board members work with the editor-in-chief to guide potential contributions from submission through peer review up to the copy-editing stage. Members should be available and committed, and willing to devote considerable time to the journal. Each should be well connected in their field(s) of expertise.
The call for applications is open to all EAHN members regardless of background, discipline or seniority. Applications from scholars working outside the traditional centers of scholarship are strongly encouraged, as well as from scholars working in any aspect of the history of architecture and the built environment before 1900.
Full details about the call for applications can be found here.
On the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the EAHN, we invite scholars to join us in rethinking some of our founding questions: how might the inextricable ties between knowledge and geopolitics be interpreted? And how can we unpack the significance of “Europe” for our scholarly domain today?
Within architectural history we have witnessed Europe cede its position as intellectual hub to North America. But in an increasingly global world, we ask how new distributions of power are currently affecting the production of architectural knowledge.
For this anniversary special collection of our journal Architectural Histories, we invite position papers of up to 3000 words (footnotes and references included) that address these historiographical questions.
Details of the call, and the remit of papers invited, can be found HERE.

HISTORIES IN CONFLICT: CITIES | BUILDINGS | LANDSCAPES
Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, Jerusalem
June 13-15 2017
We are pleased to announce the EAHN’s third thematic conference Urban Histories in Conflict.
On the 50-year anniversary of the Israeli occupation of East Jerusalem and the contentious unification it legislated, the conference aims to open up questions about the purpose of writing histories of urban conflicts. We ask how can historians account for the predicaments of violence and uneven distributions of power in the built environment, particularly in the face of current worldwide geo-political crises.
The Network organizes a major international conference every second year and smaller, thematic conferences in intermediate years. The EAHN Conference page includes details of all our events, and guidelines for organisers.
