Early Modern Architecture Call for PhD Dissertations and Research Projects in Progress

Early Modern Architecture (http://earlymodernarchitecture.com) is a new initiative that explores global, interdisciplinary frameworks for the architecture (design, theory, and practice) of Europe and its colonies, 1400-1800. We are particularly interested in fostering discussion about innovative issues, areas of inquiry, and approaches across both research and education. A major component of this initiative, therefore, will be encouraging a rigorous network of exchange among scholars and professionals.

As a step toward this exchange, we are now compiling two international lists: one of research projects in progress and one of Ph.D. dissertations — both from any discipline and on any aspect ofthis field. We will post these lists on our website once we have gathered a substantial number of entries. The lists, we hope, will become an ongoing means for scholars to learn about up and coming research as well as to locate others who share their geographical and/or methodological concerns.

If you have a research project in progress or are writing a dissertation that is in progress or was completed during the 2010-2011 school year, please email us at emalistserv@gmail.com with the author’s (and supervisor’s) name, the working title, and the names of your department as well as institution. We will then add your information to our lists.

We appreciate your contribution to this component of the Early Modern Architecture initiative.
