Brief Summary

Ali Mozaffari obtained his Master of Architecture from Tehran University’s Faculty of the Fine Arts in 1995 and finished his PhD at the University of Western Australia (2011). His research has focused on the constructions of homeland, as an instance of place, and its representation in Iran in light of the country’s ideological and cultural transformations in the twentieth century. Ali’s research is across the disciplines of anthropology, museology and architecture. Ali’s current and developing research interests include: the anthropology of place, Traditionalism and Islamism and their role in conceptions of place, ambiguity in ritual and place, urban aesthetics, Illuminationism (the philosophical school) and the Islamic city, contested heritage, museums and war memorials. Ali has over fifteen years of experience in the practice of architecture and urban design, gained through individual and collaborative work in Iran and Australia and has gained recognition in competitions and professional publications. Ali’s other outputs include experimental films and photographic works.
