Call for Editorial Board Members
Danielle Dent

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 four Editorial Board members who are actively involved in research and teaching on disability studies, design practices (buildings and/or installations), critical geographies, critical material studies, nonhuman agency, representation, and urban design.

Applicants should be architectural educators, but 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 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, 2024. This call for Editorial Board members is international. 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.

To apply, you must download the cover sheet and submit the following items in a single PDF in the following order by the March 1, 2024 deadline:

  • Cover sheet
  • A cover letter that addresses your potential to contribute to both the editorial mission of the JAE and the journal’s commitment to justice, equity, and inclusion (2 pages, maximum)
  • a current curriculum vitae (3 pages, maximum)
  • 2-3 examples of past publications

Applicants must complete an ACSA profile or affirm they reviewed an existing profile, as explained on the cover sheet.

Submit the PDF by email to Julia McKenzie, Publications Manager/Staff Editor, jmckenzie@acsa-arch.org, using the subject heading “JAE Editorial Board.” Applications must be received no later than March 1, 2024. Direct any inquiries to eeditor@acsa-arch.org. The JAE Editorial Board will review and recommend candidates for approval to the ACSA Board of Directors in the Spring of 2024.
