HIDDEN CITIES is a blog of stories from the Middle East written by Frederick Deknatel, a 2008-2009 Fulbright Fellow in Syria. I recently completed my MPhil in Modern Middle Eastern Studies at St. Antony’s College, Oxford. A freelance journalist, I contribute to The Nation, The National, and the Los Angeles Review of Books, and have written for the Christian Science Monitor, GlobalPost, Architectural Record, Al Jazeera English, Daily News Egypt, the Huffington Post, the Faster Times, Guernica, and elsewhere online and in print. I wrote the Historical Travel section for the Faster Times.
