The International Journal of Islamic Architecture, where Tyler art history faculty Emily Neumeier has been serving as an assistant editor, is the 2019 winner of the Mohamed Makiya Prize for Architecture (a.k.a. the “Middle Eastern Architectural Personality of the Year Award”).  The journal was among an impressive list of eight other finalists.

The jury reported that “IJA was celebrated for its courage and stamina in focusing on Islamic architecture at such a high academic level. It is one of the few, if not only, journals of its kind. And it brings together multidisciplinary, international scholars into its realm, as it aspires to a high standard of excellence. Its impact on practitioners and researchers contributes to creating a critical platform on the subject.” For details, see
