Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the staff of the International Journal of Islamic Architecture (IJIA), I would like to announce the publication of the special issue on “Imagining Localities of Antiquity in Islamic Societies" (Vol. 6, Issue 2, July 2017). This is the twelfth of a bi-annually published peer-reviewed journal on architecture, urban design, planning, and landscape architecture. IJIA aims to encourage dialogue between practitioners and scholars and enhance appreciation for the urban heritage in the region and pioneering design work. The journal is committed to inviting new research on understudied topics and reaching out to a broad international readership.

This volume contains an editorial essay by the guest editor, Dr. Stephennie Mulder, book and exhibition reviews, conference précis, and articles that investigate how historically, pre-Islamic and Islamic antiquities have been viewed by scholars and audiences within the Muslim world, from early Islam to the nineteenth century, and from Ottoman Greece to present-day India. Three of these articles focus on the medieval and early modern eras and discuss how ancient sites were utilized to promote ideas of kingship, lineage, and/or political power. The modern and contemporary periods are the focus of the remaining articles within this volume, addressing issues of heritage discourse and how local populations perceive the importance of heritage within their communities. Dedicated to the memory of Dr. Khaled al-As‘ad, the former director of the archaeological site of Palmyra, one of the primary goals of this collection of articles is explore the many meanings that objects and spaces of antiquity have within a Muslim context, and how these can affect contemporary discussions of heritage.

The twelfth issue of the IJIA is available in print and online. Please click on the link below to preview abstracts of articles:

We would appreciate it if you would share this announcement with your colleagues. And we also look forward to receiving your contributions, comments, and suggestions.

Sincerely,

Patricia Blessing
Administrative Coordinator and Associate Editor
International Journal of Islamic Architecture
