Islamic Architecture
Careers related to Islamic art and architecture
I was wondering about the possible career options related to Islamic art and arhitecture in different parts of the world in general, and Egypt in particular. How are things like in academia? Are there any venues that are also possible apart from the more obvious historic conservation and restoration field?

Dear Sara,

Are you interested in curatorial type jobs? I recently put this up in the Digital Calendar: Shangri La Curator, Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.

I think jobs of this kind exist for people at multiple levels in the field in museums and at unique organizations such as the Shangri La and can combine aspects of scholarship, restoration (mostly objects) and collections development.
