I am considering Architectural Journalism and Criticism as my Dissertation topic.
Please guide me with suggestions on the aptness of the topic as well as the references ,data and any other useful information and suggestions regarding it.
Saman, I find the titel of your dissertation topic to be interesting and rather ironic because does "Architectural Jounalism" automatically mean "Architectural Criticism", and vice versa?
Therefore, you could put forward these two quite different angles separately and then put the two together.

if u would be helping me with some data sources or ny references i l b obliged
Architectural Journalism is still a new entity and hence still in an exploration mode. But I beg to differ that criticism and journalism in architecture are the same. it requires to be understood how journalism can actually support the profession on a better standing of sustainability and environmental issues of today with the shifting paradigms of architecture in the global sector
Maria, as with any form of media, there are some subjects which are not mentioned, not because they cause offence, but because the journalists and editors do not consider such subjects worthy of their interest.
Therefore, there is criticism implicit in all of the fashionable glossy architectural magazines, because what is not included is therefore not noticed as being absent. In other words, architectural criticism by ommission and not commission.
So I really miss the architectural journal "Mimar" because it presented a wide range of architectural matter.
