On the occasion of the Tenth Anniversary of the EAHN, we invite scholars to join us in rethinking one of our founding questions, namely, how to interpret the inextricable ties between knowledge and geopolitics, an issue that arose from the naming of our network. How can we unpack the significance of “Europe” for our scholarly domain today? Specifically, we are interested in the shifting locus of the power to shape intellectual discourse. 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. We dedicate a special issue of Architectural Histories to this question.
Please send abstracts (500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1, 2016. Full papers will be expected by January 31, 2017. The publishing fee for accepted articles will be waived.
You can download the full Call for Papers here.
