Call for Papers - Instant Cities: Emergent Trends in Architecture and Urbanism in the Arab World

The Center for the Study of Architecture in the Arab Region (CSAAR) will organize the third international conference in collaboration with the School of Architecture and Design, American University of the Sharjah, from 1 to 3 April 2008 at American University of Sharjah, focusing on the causes and effects of emergent trends in architecture and urbanism in the Gulf. Organizers invite colleagues from across disciplines to develop analysis that identify, explicate and theorize emergent trends in architecture and urbanism in the Arab region in general and the Gulf states in particular. Questions to be considered include: How has economic progress affected contemporary architecture and urbanism in the Arab region? What theoretical constructs can be employed to explain transformations in the built environment? What can be learned from architecture and urbanism in fast-developing cities like Dubai? How have inhabitants adapted to the effects of urban development?

Interested parties are invited to submit papers in all areas related to urbanism and architecture, particularly work focusing on bridging the gap between theory and practice. For more details about this conference, please visit their website:
