The Society of Architectural Historians invites nominations and self-nominations for two individuals to serve on the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians (JSAH) Editorial Advisory Committee for a term of four years starting May 15, 2021. JSAH features leading scholarship in the English language in all aspects of the history of the built environment. The committee provides expertise across the discipline’s chronological and geographic subfields.

The JSAH Editorial Advisory Committee advises the Journal’s editor and assists them in promoting the Journal to potential readers and authors, suggesting to the editor peer reviewers and acting as peer reviewers. Members of the Editorial Advisory Committee shall provide advice to the editor, who maintains final decision-making authority.
