About the series:
Over the past decades, the study of Islamic material culture has been marked by increased scholarly attention to transcultural dimensions of art, architecture and archaeology. This interest coincides with an interest in histories of mobility generated by contemporary discourses of the global. It has taken a variety of forms, from attention to the modalities and effects of circulation – the result of diplomatic exchange and gifting, long-distance trade, or looting and reuse, for example – to research on media and regions that lie on the margins of the Islamic world, or outside the traditional boundaries of the canon. Points of Contact introduces some of the exciting new scholarship generated by these developments.

We gratefully acknowledge NYU’s Department of Art History and The Silver Center for co-sponsoring this lecture.
