Joelho 8 - Articles

This issue of Joelho aims at mapping and discussing this transformation. Using a pars pro toto approach, we want to produce a critical cross-section of ideas and practices for the European City developed since 1914. We invite scholarly contributions that discuss how architects and the architecture discipline contributed to the production and reproduction of approaches to the (re)definition of the identity of the European city. The articles submitted should be focused on case studies of urban projects or strategies with potential to promote urban transformation. We welcome historiographical accounts of cases supported by original research as well as critical reviews of contemporary ideas and practices.

Authors of full articles (4000 words max, English language, APA Style) are requested to submit their contributions to the editors before 4 September, 2017. The editors will then select a limited number of submissions to go through a double blind peer-review process. This issue of Joelho will be published in December 2017.
