Call for Applications: Reviews Editor (pre-1800) for Architectural Histories

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.

Working closely with the Editor-in-Chief and a counterpart Reviews Editor for the post-1800 period, the pre-1800 Reviews Editor identifies publications, exhibitions and conferences of interest and invites reviewers. After commission, the Editor oversees the writing and editing of each review, up to the point where it is ready for final copy-editing.

The Editor is expected to deliver 5-10 reviews per year.

The ideal candidate is well connected with scholars working on all aspects of pre-1800 architecture, and closely monitors the state of the field, with an eye to commissioning reviews that will stand out as lasting contributions to historical and historiographical debate. The Editor should be familiar with good practice in the commissioning and editing of reviews.

This call is open to all scholars working on topics related to pre-1800 architectural history regardless of background, discipline or seniority.

Indeed, applications from scholars working outside the traditional centers of scholarship are strongly encouraged. Applications should consist of a CV (max. 3 pages) and a cover letter specifying the candidate’s appropriate skills and qualities.

Applications should be emailed to Petra Brouwer, Editor-in-Chief (, and received no later than 31 August 2017.

The new Reviews Editor will be appointed on 1st October 2017 for a four-year term.
