Islamic Art and Architecture of the Medieval Mediterranean

Overview

Overview

This module considers objects and places from the medieval world that have accumulated multiple meanings over time. Challenging the narrative of a ‘clash of civilisations’ between Islam and Christianity, it focuses on the entangled histories of art and architecture in the medieval Mediterranean, examining through case studies the mediatory role of art, material culture and architecture from the 10th to 15th centuries.

Lecturer: Dr Anna Mc Sweeney
