Future Anterior

Future Anterior is a peer reviewed scholarly journal published twice a year by the University of Minnesota Press.

The Journal is edited by Jorge Otero-Pailos and managing editors Annie An and Christina Sun. Please feel free to contact the editorial team at future.anterior.journal@gmail.com.

The journal approaches historic preservation from a position of critical inquiry, rigorous scholarship, and theoretical analysis. Future Anterior is an important international forum for the critical examination of historic preservation, spurring challenges of its assumptions, goals, methods, and results. As the first journal in American academia devoted to the study and advancement of historic preservation, it provides a much-needed bridge between architecture and history.

The journal also features provocative theoretical reflections on historic preservation from the point of view of art, philosophy, law, geography, archeology, planning, materials science, cultural anthropology, and conservation.

Future Anterior is essential reading for anyone interested in historic preservation and its role in current cultural and theoretical debates. Our authors/ guest editors and board members are some of the most prominent architects, designers and professionals working within the preservation field today. A full list of our guest editors can be found below, and an index to the archive of past topics of inquiry can be found here
