Bloomsbury Publishing is pleased to announce the start of a new book series: Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture, which will be edited by Tom Avermaete and Janina Gosseye. This book series will focus on the modern movement in architecture - a sweeping and multivalent phenomenon, which changed the lives of millions of people across political, cultural and geographical boundaries worldwide.
'Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture' aims to create a more comprehensive history of the modern movement, by bringing to light the work of a wide range of architects whose significance is reappraised in contemporary scholarship. The series aims to:
- Uncover the so-called 'shadow canon', the work of 'forgotten' architects of the modern era that lingered as it were 'in the shadow' of their canonical peers and demonstrate their critical importance in architectural history;
- Offer a collection of in-depth monographic studies of modern architects and architecture firms, bringing valuable new research to scholarly attention;
- Broaden the geographical and cultural scope of the history of modernism.
'Bloomsbury Studies in Modern Architecture' seeks to nuance and enrich our understanding of the history of modern architecture, and explore the breadth and complexity of the global networks that underwrote the modern movement. To this end, the series editors are currently particularly interested in proposals that focus on Latin American architects and architecture firms.
Please contact the series editors, Tom Avermaete (t.l.p.avermaete at tudelf.nl) and Janina Gosseye (j.gosseye at uq.edu.au) directly, if you wish to submit a book proposal.
