The course addresses Islamic art of the pre-modern period along with its scholarly reception, collection, and revival during the 19th and 20th centuries. It explores the many ways in which collectors, scholars, artists, and architects have encountered Islamic artistic traditions during the modern period. It aims to highlight how Islamic art—as a constructed scholarly discipline and corpus of selected objects—must be considered a global phenomenon that has been constructed through the efforts of various artistic entrepreneurs at the same time as it has been entangled in the cultural politics of Colonialism, Orientalism, and globalization over the course of the past two centuries.
