CALL FOR PAPERS due 22 October 2007Zagros traditional settlements

The first conference on Zagros Traditional Settlements will be co-hosted by the University of Kurdistan and INTBAU (International Network for Traditional Building, Architecture & Urbanism). The main theme of the conference is the socio-spatial character of traditional settlements in the Zagros Mountains area, and will bring together scholars from the Zagros region with national and international academics with experience of researching and studying traditional settlements.

The conference will take place in the city of Sanandaj (Sine), which was the historic Kurdish capital for many centuries.

Zagros is the name of the mountain range shared between three countries of Iran, Iraq and Turkey. They make up Iran and Iraq’s largest mountain range and define the western edge of the Iranian plateau and were recognised as the single physical phenomenon which has had a major influence in shaping Kurdish history, people, traditions, and culture.
