York Islamic Art Circle

This talk will explore the impact of Orientalism on the beginning of heritage conservation in Egypt, the articulation of a national style in architecture and the revival of traditional artefacts. It will also refer to the Egyptian intellectual attitude towards these developments and the concepts of tradition versus modernity in the late 19th century. 

Professor Doris Behrens-Abouseif, SOAS University of London
