We survey the complex arts, architecture and material culture of the Islamic world and explore critical debates that help us relate different traditions that encompass this broad category of visual culture. We introduce important global, transcultural, and transregional currents in art history through an object-oriented approach to teaching that includes the on-site study of gallery and museum collections.
