Call for Papers: Articles and Field Notes

Arris, the journal of the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, is accepting submissions for articles and field notes to be published in upcoming issues. 

Articles generally run from 5000-7000 words. They should demonstrate a rigorous mastery over the scholarly literature, research methods, field work (if applicable), and available primary sources of the subject. Articles should proceed beyond a descriptive approach to draw new conclusions or present new theoretical paradigms. Articles selected for publication have been blind peer-reviewed.

Field notes should be shorter contributions, approximately 2500 words in length, that discuss significant ongoing field work or other research in which SESAH members would be interested. Field notes selected for publication have been either blind peer-reviewed or reviewed by the editorial board.

Only original work neither published previously nor under review for publication elsewhere will be considered.

There is no specific deadline for submissions, which are accepted on a rolling basis. If an article or field notes is accepted, but the issue in progress already has a sufficient number of them, it will be published in the next issue.

Submissions should follow Arris guidelines.

Send submissions for articles and field notes to the Arris Editors:
          Mark Reinberger, Arris Editor,
          Vandana Baweja, Arris Co-Editor,
