A new essay on Doha, urbanization, and an art exhibit

Hi friends,

So I’m on sabbatical this semester, and with a bit of extra time here and there, I put together this essay about the urbanism and urbanization I’ve encountered in Doha and other parts of the Arabian peninsula. I also use the essay to discuss Kristin Giordano‘s recent exhibit (Landscape and Transformation: Photographs of Doha, Qatar), which showed earlier this fall at the Kittredge Gallery at the University of Puget Sound. If you’re interested, you can have a look at the essay on the Cities page of the relatively new Jadaliyya website.
