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.

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.
Applications should be emailed to Petra Brouwer, Editor-in-Chief (email@example.com), and received no later than 15 December 2017.
The new Reviews Editor will be appointed on 15 January 2018 for a four-year term.

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.
