Over recent decades, the history of construction has established itself as a fertile ground for research thanks to the work that has been carried out by different disciplines in organizations such as the Construction History Society in England and the Spanish Society for the History of Construction (SEHC for its acronym in Spanish). The growing Latin American interest has recently promoted the organization to sponsor two Hispano-American conferences on the history of construction as well as similar events that have been held locally in Mexico, Chile, Brazil; there is an event planned in Colombia for the end of 2018.
For the purposes of this call for papers, the history of construction should be understood as the study of the way in which man has materialized his intentions to transform his surroundings. As such, the thematic scope is not only limited to buildings or particular historical monuments.
The Dearq issue that is the subject of this call for papers is looking to gather a selection of papers that are to be presented in the Colombian Conference on the History of Construction and draw attention to recent research in the area. However, it also seeks to construct a revision of the field within a Latin American context. As such, we are particularly interested in articles that address the history of construction from comparative, integrated, interdisciplinary, and historiographical perspectives as well as assessments of research output and summaries of books, exhibitions, and events.
