McEnroe Publishes Book about Minoan Crete Architecture

John McEnroe, the John and Anne Fischer Professor of Fine Art, has published Architecture of Minoan Crete: Constructing Identity in the Aegean Bronze Age with the University of Texas Press.

According to the publisher, the book is “the first comprehensive study of the entire range of Minoan architecture – including houses, palaces, and tombs, and cities – from 7000 B.C. to 1100 B.C.” McEnroe explores how the Minoans, living on the threshold between the Middle East, Europe and Africa, used architecture to construct their conceptions of social, ethnic, and historical identity: the buildings show how the Minoans saw themselves and how they wanted to be seen by others.
