To help educators teach and learn about art and culture of the Muslim world, the MET curated a resource guide, Art of the Islamic World: A Resource for Educators. The goal of this guide is to showcase that the Islamic world and Muslims are diverse and not a monolithic entity by showcasing religious and secular forms of art that were produced in the Islamic world. This resource guide includes an Introduction and seven units on topics such as: Islam and religious art; Arabic scripts and the art of calligraphy; geometric design in Islamic art; science and the art of the Islamic world; courtly splendor in the Islamic world; from the city to the steppe; and trade an artistic exchange. Educators will be able to download PDFs for each unit plan.
The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
