H-AMCA is a network devoted to the study of modern and contemporary art from the Arab world, Iran, and Turkey. We aim to create a network of interested scholars and organizations to enable historians and other scholars to easily communicate current research and teaching interests, and to promote scholarly cooperation between both persons and organizations.
