FUTURE ANTERIOR



Future Anterior publish Artist Intervention: Frösakull in Six Years by Mikael Olsson in Volume 7, Number 2, Winter 2010. Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

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