Scholars of architecture, art history, anthropology, and other disciplines provide information and perspectives on earth building within Muslim cultures for specialists in Islamic architecture or in construction material. Their topics include adobe as an Islamic standard: vernacular cosmopolitics, Draa Valley: tighremt and igherm in Morocco, identity and architecture: the Fatimid walls in Cairo, mud brick architecture in Hadramawt-Yemen under the Qu'aite and Kathiri sultanates, traditions of monumental decoration in the earthen architecture of early Islamic Central Asia, and between tradition and modernity: building with earth in a contemporary city. Most of the 12 papers are from an August 2014 Middle East Studies congress in Ankara. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
