JAE 70:2 Scholarship of Design

Call for Theme Proposals

September 1, 2015 - 5:00pm

What is the next important question in the architectural discourse of professional practice and/or education? What issues should the Journal of Architectural Education be addressing? We invite you to tell us. The JAE invites provocative proposals for Issue 70:2 to be published in the fall of 2016. Proposals may be broadly framed or specifically situated but should clearly state the intended premise and scope of the suggested topic.
Authors should submit a 500-word (maximum) description of the proposed special issue or theme and a brief biography that demonstrates the author’s expertise in the proposal’s area of focus and experience working with collaborators on multi-authored publications. We encourage proposals that are in partnership with current Board Members. The author(s) of the selected proposal will serve as Theme Editor(s) for JAE 70:2. In consultation with the Executive Editor and Associate Editors, the Theme Editor will be responsible for soliciting Opinion essays, assigning peer-reviewers for all submitted materials and ensuring timely completion of all theme-related content in the issue and online.

The submission deadline for all theme proposals is September 01, 2015, 5 PM PST. Refer all submissions and inquiries to Marc J Neveu, Executive Editor at

The Journal of Architectural Education has been published since 1947 for the purpose of enhancing architectural design education, theory, and practice. The Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) board supports the development of the JAE as the leading, blind-refereed, scholarly journal in the field presenting thoughtful discussion about the state of architecture and architectural education. The JAE is published twice in each volume year. Contributions include Scholarship of Design, Design as Scholarship, Opinion, Translations, Interviews, Reviews, and Design Frameworks.
