Writing histories

This theme gathers critical reflections upon the nature, practice, and scope of architectural history. Do other approaches, for example, non-human-centric histories such as environmental history, or subaltern histories, provide us with the means to push the boundaries of the discipline? The theme seeks to further current understandings of how the field is shaped by its historiographical devices, which could include a critical engagement with particular extant terminologies, categories, modes of classification, epistemes, methods, sources, and approaches.
