Architectural Histories seeks reviews and critical essays on books, exhibitions and other architectural media. Taking full advantage of the rapid production cycle offered by digital open access publication, Architectural Histories aims to publish reviews that respond to the latest releases in the field and also to widen the traditional scope of reviews to include recent exhibitions and conferences related to histories of architecture. Although we favour individual book and exhibition reviews, we also welcome longer essay-style reviews comparing several books or other media. Reviews should be about 1000 words in length. Rather than taking requests from authors who would like to have their work reviewed, we invite proposals from scholars who wish to comment on a recent publication or exhibition of importance on architectural history.
Proposals should be sent directly by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include a couple of lines summarising the significance of the proposed book and your expertise in the field. For more information about the format, please consult the section ‘reviews’ on the ‘instructions for authors page’ on our website: https://journal.eahn.org/about/submissions

For a Special Collection on Digital Architectural History, Architectural Histories, the open access journal of the EAHN, in collaboration with the Institute for the History and Theory of architecture at the ETH Zürich (gta), seeks proposals for contributions that set a new benchmark in digital publication in the field of the history of architecture and the built environment.
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.
