CFP: New book series: Critical Studies in Architecture of the Middle East

Critical Studies in Architecture of the Middle East
<http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/books/view-Series,id=39/>is devoted to
the most recent scholarship concerning historic and contemporary
architecture, landscape, and urban design of the Middle East and of
regions shaped by diasporic communities more globally. We invite
interdisciplinary studies from diverse perspectives that address the
visual characteristics of the built environment, ranging from
architectural case studies to urban analysis. The series will
illustrate a range of approaches to the commission, design,
construction, use, and reception of buildings and landscapes throughout
the region; concurrently, it will illuminate the region’s diverse
architectural cultures and traditions. The series intends to present
the history, theory, practice, and critical analyses of historical and
contemporary architecture, landscape, and urban design, as well as the
interpretation and conservation of the region’s existing cultural
heritage. It will include surveys, monographs, and edited volumes.
Series editors: Mohammad Gharipour & Christiane Gruber
