Aggregate’s website is an online platform to support the production, peer review, publication and discussion of innovative scholarship in architectural history. We aim to stimulate new research methodologies and techniques in architectural history and theory, particularly emphasizing interdisciplinary approaches; to open up the processes of research, debate and publication to broader participation by scholars, practitioners, and students; and to create a public forum for research in architectural history and theory.
Aggregate welcomes contributions from all areas, periods, and regions of research that pertain to architecture and its ancillary fields.
What this website does
Publishes innovative and rigorous scholarship: This online platform advances a commitment to the ideals of collaborative peer interaction on which the Aggregate Architectural History Collaborative was founded. All items published on the Aggregate website are edited by members of Aggregate’s editorial board, and many are peer-reviewed and workshopped at Aggregate’s semi-annual meetings prior to publication.
Serves as a site for online debate and discussion in our field: This site also features announcements and listings of relevant debates, events, and publications within our field, and provides opportunities for discussion of and commentary upon them.
Supports collaborative work: Behind the scenes, our website also serves an online platform to assist with collaborative research projects. We host tools for project management, group editing, and online discussion of scholarly work.
How this website is organized
Our online publishing platform features an expanding archive of pieces, or scholarly work in a variety of formats.
Pieces might also be part of a project, a carefully-curated long-term research endeavor, to which pieces can be continually added over time.
Pieces appear on our home page as solid shapes, and projects are outlined.
