Reorienting Perspectives: Why I Do Not Teach a Course Titled ‘Islamic Architecture’
Type

2021
This essay argues for a scholarly perspective that speaks about the Islamic ‘I’ not against, but rather with ‘the Other’ ‐ an approach that allows architectural historians to localize and examine architectural practices within distinct sociopolitical or geographic regions in more subtle ways. The essay highlights some classroom and research results from studying Islamic architecture as a non-monolithic entity and within inclusionary discourses.
