Call for Papers

The next issue of The Journal of History & Culture (JHC) will focus on the relevance of culture, preservation, sustainability and pedagogy in architectural education. JHC seeks to explore a multitude of themes through a discussion about pedagogy. What role does education play within current pedagogy, professional practice, and knowledge? What  is the value of heritage? How do we educate future practitioners, and what are the projects that may serve as paradigms and why?
