Nora Lafi's picture

Researchers from all different scientific backgrounds are invited to contribute to a publication about mapping in cities in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Zeido Zeido and Suna Çağaptay, the editors of the volume, kindly ask potential authors to hand in their proposals until 1 September 2020.

Mapping the untold narrative of urban heritage, this book seeks to fill gaps of knowledge in understanding the city. The book is concerned with several aspects of heritage, mainly the perception, marginalisation, history, planning schemes, and layers of a city.

Researchers from all different scientific backgrounds are invited to contribute. While committing to the highest standards of scientific research, different approaches and methodologies are welcomed including unorthodox or controversial methodologies.

By 1 September 2020, contributors should send an abstract of around 250 words, in addition to details about the maps/illustrations that they expect to submit (e.g. number, content, and colours).

The submission of the actual chapters is expected by 1 December 2020.

Dr. des. Zeido Zeido (Zeido(at)
Assistant Prof. Dr. Suna Çağaptay, Bahçeşehir University/Cambridge University (sc2020(at)
