New Fall Course: Europe and the Islamic World

May 30th, 2014 in News

This fall, Emine Fetvaci, Associate Professor of History of Art and Architecture Department, will offer a seminar entitled “Europe and the Islamic World.” The course (AH 540) is a graduate/undergraduate mixed seminar meeting from 10 AM to 1 PM on Mondays. Art related to the Crusades,  the conquest and transformation of Constantinople, the exchanges between Venice and the Ottomans, and Islamic Spain will all be examined. Professor Fetvaci has conceived the course as an introduction to Islamic art for those more familiar with European artistic and cultural traditions. There will be at least one visit each to the MFA and the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum. [Download course flyer]
