Khamseen: Islamic Art History Online

Spearheaded by Prof. Christiane Gruber, Khamseen: Islamic Art History Online is a free and open-access online platform of digital resources to aid the teaching of Islamic art, architecture, and visual culture. It has received financial support from UM’s Digital Islamic Studies Curriculum (DISC), through a grant by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and UM’s History of Art Department. The platform provides original multimedia content developed by scholars from across the field of Islamic art, which is intended to aid educators in the creation of an interactive learning environment and to contribute to new ways of teaching in general, bringing new voices, perspectives, and materials into our classrooms.
