Muslim Journeys

islamicartIslamic Arts, a book by Norma Jean Calderwood University Professors of Islamic and Asian Art Jonathan Bloom and Sheila Blair, has been selected by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association to be included in Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, a collection of 25 books, three documentary films, and a series of seven short videos on Islamic culture that will be distributed to more than 840 libraries and state humanities councils across the country.  The collection was chosen by a team of scholars and librarians for its potential to offer readers new and diverse perspectives on the histories and cultures of Muslim societies. Islamic Arts is a comprehensive survey that covers a thousand years and highlights characteristics that connect the various arts of the Islamic lands. According to the NEH, the libraries receiving the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf are public libraries, public library systems, community college libraries, and academic libraries, representing 50 states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
