Architectural Histories is the online open access journal of the EAHN, published by Ubiquity Press. 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 for the journal. Taking full advantage of the rapid production cycle offered by an online open access publication, 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.

We live today in a world of rapid change. These changes take form in technological innovations, socio-economic shifts, political uncertainties, cultural developments, and climatic and ecological divergence. The resulting storms of excitement, fear and anxiety have stimulated the development of new constructs in the social and applied sciences, notably the concept of resilience. Developed first in relation to biological and ecological systems, resilience is generally understood as the ability of something or someone to return to a stable state from an anomalous one. On a more subtle level, “resilience” implies processes of negotiation, absorption, and adaptation in response to significant change. Within architectural history, recent research on resilience has focused on the ecological and environmental issues, with specific attention to the development of building in response to present and future changes. Less has been written about the social and cultural dimensions of the change in respect to architectural production – how constructions have adapted to change in the past, and the ways in which these changes have been theorized and presented in history. The EAHN journal Architectural Histories seeks to expand the discourse on resilience in architecture, and the correlative idea of recovery.
Architectural Histories invites abstracts for articles that explore these ideas and concepts in relation to any period, epoch or region of architecture.

Since its establishment in 2011, Architectural Histories has worked with an in-house proofreader to help ensure the quality of its output.
The proofreader checks the page proofs of all articles on typos and consistency with the journal’s style guide after the final stage of copy-editing. The proofread is the last step in the journal’s system of quality control. The proofreader collates his/her own corrections with those of the author, sends them back to the typesetter, and signals to the editor-in-chief whether the article is ready for publication or requires further proofing.
