Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law Resources Roundup

The Field Guide to Digital Islamic Law, in the form of a Google document, is a collection of resource links and annotations to SHARIAsource and other Harvard resources, global online digital resources, and a robust “Digital Islamic Law Collection.” We recently added exciting resources to this list:

  • 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 is sponsored by the Digital Islamic Studies Curriculum (DISC) at the University of Michigan through the support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In its initial stage, 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.”
  • Aga Khan Museum Academic Resources “is a dedicated page on the AKM museum website with links to resources on the collection (3D tours of the galleries, collections search, short videos), special exhibitions (PDFs of catalogues, lists of relevant objects, online lectures), and other parts of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (including the Music Initiative and Award for Architecture). The Museum is also offering a ‘Book a Curator’ program, if you would like a member of the curatorial staff to visit your class for a virtual object handling session, to talk about issues of collecting and museum display, or speak to their areas of specialty within Islamic art.”
