Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians (JSAH) Roundtable: Rethinking the Urban Landscape

Date: 8/9/2021 - 10/15/2021

Type: Call for Papers / Submissions

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): US


A JSAH roundtable consists of a series of short essays, each of approximately 1000 words, that will be collectively published in the place of a single article in an issue of JSAH. This format provides an opportunity for a range of scholars to explore new research directions through a variety of lenses, alongside the traditional full-length articles that are the JSAH mainstay. We welcome submissions by scholars at different career stages (including independent scholars) and different types of institutions (universities, government agencies, museums) that are diverse in their gender, racial, and national composition. Scholars are invited to submit a CV and a one-paragraph proposal for consideration to Thaisa Way and David Karmon

Seeking to promote a more complex understanding of how scholars conceptualize cities and nature and to expand opportunities for collaborative thinking across the humanities and sciences, this JSAH roundtable invites our contributors to consider three broad questions. First, in what ways and to what ends have scholars reframed how the city/nature duality is read and understood? Second, how has interdisciplinary scholarship across the humanities and natural sciences challenged and shaped research and teaching on cities and nature? Third, how can humanists push the boundaries of scholarship and teaching further to understand the implications of an increasingly urban world?
