ABE – Architecture Beyond Europe is a scholarly, blind peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of nineteenth and twentieth-century architecture and urbanism outside of Europe. It focuses primarily on the transfers, adaptations and appropriations of forms, technologies, models and doctrines in colonial and postcolonial situations. It is also concerned with the deployment of architecture from and to Europe through both formal and informal modes of imperial expansion, postcolonial nation-building, international organizations, the migration and exile of building and construction experts, and the transnational flux of ideas and concepts.
ABE welcomes monographic and methodological essays; reviews of books, symposiums, and exhibitions; presentations of relevant historical documents and holdings, as well as recent dissertation abstracts. The journal’s editors also encourage proposals for guest-edited thematic sections to the volumes.
Conceived as a place of exchange in an emerging and dynamic field of research, ABE Journal aims to provide a specialist scholarly forum for the discussion and dissemination of ideas relating to architecture in the colonial and postcolonial realms, as well as local forms of modernism.

The journal is supported by the Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (CNRS, National Center for Scientific Research, France).

Specific calls for thematic section papers are regularly open, with their own schedule of deadlines.

Concurrently, we welcome the submission of papers that fit the remit of the journal while being unrelated to specific thematic sections, as well as of new thematic section proposals, at all times.

All submissions should be sent to abeinha.fr
