Professor Howayda Al-Harithy

Dr. Howayda Al-Harithy is a Professor of Architecture and the Chair of the Department of Architecture and Design at the American University of Beirut. She was a visiting professor at the Department of Fine Arts at Harvard University in 1994, at the Department of Architecture at MIT in 1993 and in 2000 and at the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University in 2005-06.

Al-Harithy received her bachelor degree in architecture from the Oregon School of Design in 1985, masters in architecture from MIT in 1987, PhD in art history from Harvard University in 1992. Her research in Islamic art and architecture focuses on the Mamluk period. The research engages theoretical models of interpretation, particularly post-structuralist models, as analytic tools of the production of architectural and urban space in medieval cities. She published a monograph in the Bibliotheca Islamica series entitled The Waqf Document of Sultan Hasan ibn Muhammad ibn Qalawun. She is also published in international journals such as Oxford's Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies, Muqarnas, Mamluk Studies Review, and the Harvard Middle Eastern and Islamic Review.

More recent research focuses on urban heritage with special emphasis on the theoretical debate on heritage construction and consumption related to identity building and post war reconstruction projects as applied to the contemporary practice in the Arab World. The research is published in leading journals such as IJMES and TDSR. She is the editor of and contributor to a recently published book entitled Lessons in Post-War Reconstruction: Case Studies from Lebanon in the Aftermath of the 2006 War (Routledge, 2010).
