An introduction to the history of Islamic visual culture. Key examples will be drawn from architecture, decorative art, textiles, and ceramics.

Other fine arts such as miniature paining and calligraphy will be examined in their cultural, political, and aesthetic contexts. In both cases, collateral themes will include production methods and guild practices, pertinent conventions and usages, and cross-cultural influences relating to new contexts and forms.
