West 86th: A Journal of Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture

Call for submissions

Publication, in print and online, is a major part of the BGC’s intellectual project. For 17 years, the BGC published Studies in the Decorative Arts, an internationally acclaimed journal covering the decorative arts, design history, and material culture. The success of this journal represents the success also of a new institution at catalyzing intellectual conversation. We have substantially rethought Studies in the Decorative Arts after its final issue, printed in fall 2009. A new journal, West 86th: A Journal of Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture, was relaunched in 2011, in collaboration with the University of Chicago Press, and focuses on the wider crossroads where the decorative arts meet design history and material culture. In addition to its print manifestation, this new journal is published online through JSTOR and is also the starting point for an open-access Web site dedicated to journal-related digital content.
