NEH 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’m 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.

Here’s the general reading list I’ve been working on for the past few weeks:
