Spotlight titles


Global Conversations in Art Education

This new edited collection explores histories of art education in international contexts. Offers a series of thoughtful and invigorating conversations with international scholars who evoke our conceptualizations of the histories of art education in pursuit of more equitable, diverse and inclusive understandings of the field. 35 col. illus.

Long before the Taliban, ISIS and other iconoclasts, Muslims imagined localities of antiquity as places imbued with didactic, historical and moral power. In thirteen articles by leading scholars covering the eighth century to the present, this book explores diverse ways Muslims have valued the material legacies of ancient and pre-Islamic societies. 118 b/w illus.

Brings together research by Africanist anthropologists and architectural historians who share in the pursuit of an archaeology of modernist architecture in Africa. Case studies connect the colonial and postcolonial origins of modernist architecture, the historical processes, and present use and habitation. 132 b/w and 35 col. photographs.

An Exploration of Impossible Encounters

This book explores a selection of artistic representations of animals. Positioned within contemporary debates around the animal question, it challenges anthropocentric beliefs about the all-knowing, rational and speaking human subject and argues that the irrationality of animal worlds marks the very limits of human thinking. 42 b&w photographs.

(Re)Defining the Field

Scholars and practitioners from the realm of 'Islamic architecture’ consider its changing nature and continued significance. Reflective essays address the meaning of ‘Islamic’ in built environments, and the geographical, chronological, disciplinary diversity of a dynamic field of study encompassing far more than mosques and tombs. 118 b/w illus.

Edited by John Nott and Anna Harris

Leading historians, anthropologists, educators and designers explore the role of materiality in medical education.

A collection of first-person narratives from an international group of art historians, curators, artists and archivists.

Uncovering Ecological Understanding and Biophilia through Creative Reciprocity

New critical discourse and applied methods based on the author’s original research and interspecies art practice, Animal Lover.

Contagious Diseases in Global Cities
