Type

The rise of the west and the emergence of early modern science remain the most difficult hurdles for non-Eurocentric historians to negotiate. While intellectual and science historians have wrestled with this challenge, historians of Islamic art and architecture have ignored it, preferring to rethink their field in culturally relative terms and within an assumed neutral timeframe. This essay highlights the inadequacies of this trend and points towards possible future directions.
