A Reverence for Words: Understanding Muslim Culture through the Arts Reading List

Next week starts my 2- week summer teacher education program, A Reverence for Words: Understanding Muslims Cultures through the Arts. This will be my second National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute; last year I went to the Religious Worlds of New York Institute and this year I’s excited back in the city that never sleeps!

In preparation I have done a lot of studying and reading along with watching the amazing DVD they sent, Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World. These articles and websites below are part of the extensive reading list and have been instrumental in expanding my understanding of Islamic faith and art.

I’ll be blogging more on my experiences through the program as I encounter the rich world of Islamic art and poetry in New York City.
