The Journal of Architectural Education invites applications for at-large positions on the Editorial Board. Founded in 1947, JAE is published twice a year by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA). For over 75 years, it has been the primary venue for peer-reviewed research and commentary on architectural education. Architectural education has evolved, as has the nature of architectural scholarship. With this call, the JAE seeks to continue reflecting on these important shifts by building an editorial board that encompasses the full breadth of practices in architectural education, research, and scholarship.
Every year, the Editorial Board invites a new cohort of Editorial Board Members for a three-year term. Currently, we seek up to six Editorial Board members who are actively involved in research and teaching on disability studies, critical geography, building and design practices, borderlands, critical material studies, climate justice, energy transitions, non-Western cultures, technology, pedagogy, history and theory, landscapes and infrastructure, and urban design.
Applicants should be educators in architecture or other spatial practice disciplines. Applicants need not be tenure-track or tenured, though your institution must provide support for your travel to two editorial board meetings per year. Members may not publish their own work in the journal during their term of service.
Editorial Board members attend and participate in biannual Editorial Board meetings and committee meetings each year; they participate in standing and ad hoc committees that contribute to the content of the journal and its initiatives; they review manuscripts as requested by editors; they commission reviews of books and other media; they propose theme issues with colleagues from beyond the editorial board; they promote calls for papers within their respective networks; and they contribute to building an architectural discourse around the JAE by engaging in the disciplinary community and the broader readership beyond academia—from participating in discussions about the journal and its initiatives at ACSA to engaging in JAE’s social media platforms.
Terms of service are for three years, with the possibility of renewing for an additional term, and shall officially begin July 1, 2023.
This call for Editorial Board members is international. We encourage applications from Black, Indigenous/Native, and People of Color, and individuals teaching at minority-serving institutions. The Journal of Architectural Education is committed to building a diverse editorial board and welcomes people from all backgrounds and institutions to apply. We seek to reflect the range of disciplinary topics, research methodologies, and demographic characteristics, including race, gender, national origin, geographic location, and institution type.
