Architectural Histories is the international, blind peer-reviewed scholarly journal of the EAHN 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. For more information and how to submit a paper click here.
The journal is indexed in CrossRef, JISC KB+, SHERPA RoMEO, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), EBSCOHost, Google Scholar, the Emerging Sources Citation Index, the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals, the Italian ANVUR (classe A - Area 8), the European Reference Index for Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH PLUS), Cengage Learning and SCOPUS. In addition, Architectural Histories is available for harvesting via OAI-PMH.
Architectural Histories is pleased to announce an open call for two Junior Fellowships, both of which will be awarded to advanced master’s or early stage-PhD students who demonstrate a commitment to the journal’s ambition to diversify our content and audience. The Fellowships will last one calendar year and each prize is worth €2000.
The Junior Fellows will collaborate with the Editor-in-Chief and Editorial Assistant of Architectural Histories, as well as members of the editorial board, in order to gain an understanding of how a field journal operates. Both Fellowships will provide an overview of editorial processes and opportunities to participate in the development of exciting new initiatives.
Two Fellowships are being offered:
- The Fellow in Diversity and Inclusion will interact with the Editor-in-Chief on a weekly basis and will acquire an overview of how the journal operates. They will also collaborate on a workshop focussing on mentoring rising editors that is planned for the summer of 2022.
- The Social Media Fellow will collaborate directly with the Editorial Assistant to design and implement strategies that support the dissemination of Architectural Histories’ content in social media, particularly on Instagram, in addition to new diversity and inclusion initiatives.
To apply, use the following form: https://forms.gle/q3vHZMewFYigEVT7A
25 October: Call opens.
25 November: Call closes.
20 December: Results are announced.
10 January: Fellows start their collaboration with the journal.
1. CV (two pages maximum)
2. Short statement of 250-300 words focusing on how your previous experience would bring value to the specific Fellowship to which you are applying (Diversity and Inclusion / Social Media).

The Editorial Board of Architectural Histories is pleased to communicate the success of our most recent call for new editors, which was launched on May 21st. We received a total of 36 applications, many from stellar scholars who are already involved in EAHN and other international academic networks. We greatly appreciate the support of our community in disseminating and responding to the call.
We have decided to expand the team of Architectural Histories through the inclusion of five new general editors due to the increasing rate of submissions that the journal is experiencing at the moment. This is in part caused by the latest rankings and indexations of Architectural Histories (SJR Q2, JCR-ESCI Q2, ANVUR Classe A), which rewards academic research published in the past years and the editorial efforts of our former Editor-in-Chief, Dr Petra Brouwer. On behalf of the current editorial board, we want to thank Dr Brouwer for her outstanding work and dedication to the journal. We hope to build on her legacy over the next few years.
While we are the field journal of the European Architectural History Network, our work extends far beyond Europe. The newly appointed editors embody a global spread of interests, research topics, and cultural backgrounds. They are all acknowledged scholars with transcontinental experience actively working towards increasing diversity and inclusiveness in architectural history. The new editors are:
Roberto Fabbri - Associate Professor College of Arts and Creative Enterprises, Zayed University. United Arab Emirates.
Emma Letizia Jones - SNF Postdoc.Mobility Fellow / Assistant Professor of Architecture. Hong Kong University. Hong Kong.
Yichi Zhang - Postdoctoral Fellow. University of Oslo. Norway.
Hannah Le Roux - Associate Professor. University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. South Africa.
Richard J. Williams - Professor of Contemporary Visual Cultures. University of Edinburgh. UK.
Congratulations to all five new members of our team.
Samantha L. Martin | Editor-in-Chief
