Online - Zoom

With Dr Scott Redford Nasser D Khalili Professor of Islamic Art and Archaeology School of Oriental and African Studies University of London

In the west, the collecting of Islamic ceramics has traditionally taken a back seat to east Asian ceramics. Why is this so?

This lecture explores the roles played the dealers, collectors, and museums in creating a body of material known as “Islamic ceramics.”

What constitutes this body, and how did it come to be? How might it have been different?


The event will take place online on Zoom and a link to join the event will be shared in advance by email.
