Reading Group #6 - What is ‘Islamic’ Art?, by Wendy M.K. Shaw
The Leiden summer recess is approaching fast, but before we all go on holiday you are cordially invited to attend the last session of our 'Role of Experience' reading programme for this year. This will take place on Friday, June 23, from 13.00 – 15.00 hrs (venue to be announced).
It's open to anyone interested in experiential interactions between art, its makers, and their audiences.
Our colleague, art historian Eelco Nagelsmit, has kindly offered to discuss the following text with us:
- Wendy M.K. Shaw, What is 'Islamic' Art? Between Religion and Perception, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2019, p. 1-39 [“Introduction: From Islamic Art to Perceptual Culture”], doi:10.1017/9781108622967.001
For non-art historians among us who would like some more background Eelco recommends a second text:
- Matthew Rampley. "Agency, affect and intention in art history: some observations." Journal of Art Historiography. Birmingham: The University of Birmingham, 2021, vol. 2021, No 24, p. 1-21. doi: 10.48352/uobxjah.00003428.
Please spread the word to others who might be interested. For information, please contact Madeleine Kasten, email@example.com
