Services & staff
AKDC@MIT offers a variety of services to support the study of material and visual culture in Muslim societies writ large. Our services include:
We support the teaching and research of the history and theory of architecture, urbanism, environmental and landscape design, visual culture, and conservation, as well as the practice of architecture, in Muslim societies. Contact us for research assistance or for instruction in using our resources.
AKDC staff offer expertise across various academic disciplines, as well as Digital Humanities, Digital Scholarship, and the study, documentation, and preservation of material and visual culture across Muslim societies.
We have compiled a research guide, Art & Architecture of the Islamic World.
AKDC@MIT is open to the MIT community and the public 10:00 – 4:00 (EST), Monday through Thursday, or by appointment. Selections of our collections are available online via Archnet and in MIT Libraries’ DOME.
