about this item

The thirtieth anniversary of the Muqarnas annual on Islamic visual cultures is celebrated in this volume. Perspectives from Western scholars are mixed with some from the Islamic world. The annual documents a journal whose challenges are to offer innovative and theoretical interpretations while also providing the kinds of basic scholarly and historical documentation still often lacking in English-language scholarship on the Islamic world. This volume begins with a reflective essay on the thirty years of the journal. It includes pieces on early Islamic studies in the U.S. and Italy, documentation of an Ottoman excavation in Syria, the Rajputs of South Asia, church destruction in the Fatimid Era, placemaking in Sephardic Salonica, Al-Hairi's Maqamat, the patronage of Vizier Mirza Salman, and an Iskandarnama of Nizami produced for Ibrahim Sultan. There is also a piece on Vassal Kalendar's works, virtual archeology on the Topkapi Palace, and a reconstruction of the wooden audience halls of Shah Jahan. This is a paperbound reprint of the 2013 clothbound edition.,The thirtieth anniversary of the Muqarnas annual on Islamic visual cultures is celebrated in this volume.
