Type
abstract
Year
2021
This essay contends that scrutinizing the different ways in which Islamic architecture has been illustrated in scholarly publications is a worthwhile endeavour. Its author outlines some of the dimensions through which such a study could proceed, including the deconstruction of orientalist stereotypes. Through its brief survey of Islamic architecture’s representation in print, the highly illustrated essay ultimately reveals how varying interests (and capacities) have produced representations of varying qualities and efficacy.
