New EMA Project: Directory of Scholars

In response to several requests during the Early Modern Architecture Open Meeting, we are initiating a directory of scholars working on any aspect of the architecture (design, theory, and practice) of Europe and its colonies, c. 1400-c. 1800.   If you would like to be included in this directory, please email us with your name, departmental and institutional affiliation, area of research, and the contact information (if any) that you would like to have linked to your name once we post the directory.  We are happy to post email addresses or faculty websites and are also willing to keep contact information private until another scholar requests it.  Further information is available here and in “EMA News.”
