The focus of the third edition of the Museums in Arabia conference encourages participants to engage in a broad discussion around architecture, art and design within the context of museums and galleries in the Gulf. The conference will be hosted by the College of Architecture, Art and Design at the American University of Sharjah in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, April 18-20, 2017.

To date, the relationship between architecture, art, design and museums in the Gulf has remained at the margins of critical thinking. This conference seeks to address this gap by providing a forum for participants to analyze and discuss these themes to further academic discourse and professional practice within the region. The previous Museums in Arabia conferences have explored the role and development of Gulf museums (existing and planned) in the broadest sense. In particular, topics have examined the Gulf museum model; the challenges that museums in the region face in their development, the nature of the heritage collected; curated and displayed in the museums; and audience and community engagement.

Authors are invited to submit paper proposals relating to architecture, art and design within the context of museums, galleries and heritage institutions in the Gulf region. This is an interdisciplinary conference and, as such, we welcome paper proposals from scholars and practitioners from a broad range of disciplines. 

This conference will be of interest to academics and students working in the field of museums and cultural heritage in the region and globally, museum and gallery practitioners, art historians, artists, designers, architects, and, more broadly, those with an interest in the sociocultural, economic and political landscape of the region.
