This workshop will explore the changing production and reception of artworks and architecture during the long nineteenth century, in urban centers across the Islamic Mediterranean. Eleven papers by scholars working at the cutting edge of this emerging area of research will map transformations in image-making, architecture, and craft, with particular focus on changing technologies of production and reproduction, circulation, and exchange. Together, the papers in this workshop will break new ground by integrating artworks from the Islamic world into fully realized frameworks of modernity.
