Khamseen: Islamic Art History Online offers short-form presentations and glossary term definitions to support teaching, learning, and research in Islamic art and related fields. Since the website’s launch in Fall 2020, we have regularly added new presentations. While the PhD has been a requirement for submission until now, Khamseen is pleased to announce the launch of a new initiative: the Khamseen Graduate Student Presentation Award


We invite PhD candidates (ABD) to submit short (10-12 minute) video presentations for consideration. The winning applicant(s) will work with our team to revise and publish their short video presentation(s), which then will be featured on the Khamseen website.
