Washington, D.C., July 5, 2013 – Marc J. Neveu, Ph.D., of the Wentworth Institute of Technology has been named Executive Editor of the Journal of Architectural Education (JAE) for a four-year term starting July 1, 2013. Neveu has previously contributed to the JAE as a writer, a reviewer, a theme editor, and, most recently, as an Editorial Board member and Associate Editor of Media Strategies. The JAE has been the primary venue for research and commentary on architectural education since it was founded in 1947. Published twice a year, the JAE is the longest running journal of its kind, with an estimated circulation of over 10,000.
“As the most important peer-reviewed journal in our field, the JAE plays a fundamental role in the development of emerging faculty as well as providing a place for established academics to shape contemporary issues,” says Neveu. His goals for the publication lie in developing both the print and online platforms to advance future scholarship and to lead current architectural discourse.
“Marc presented a clear vision for the future of the journal: to broaden its audience and authorship and to strengthen the relationship between JAE and ACSA initiatives,” said ACSA President Norman Millar.
Neveu graduated with a professional degree in architecture from Wentworth after which he went on to complete a post-professional M.Arch and Ph. D. at McGill University in Montréal. While working on his dissertation Marc was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for study in Venice and a Collection Research Grant at the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Neveu has taught at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, and was a visiting faculty member at SCI-Arc in Los Angeles. In 2011 he began work in the Department of Architecture at Wentworth where he teaches history/theory and studio.
