RETHINKING PLACE IN SOUTH ASIAN AND ISLAMIC ART, 1500-PRESENT. Ed. by Deborah S. Hutton and Rebecca M. Brown. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. Copyright 2017. An Ashgate Book. 286 pp. with 78 ills. 26 x 18 cm. LC 2016-17297 ISBN 9781472466341 In English.
Publisher's description: Place plays a fundamental role in the structuring of the discipline of Art History. And yet, place also limits the questions art historians can ask and impairs analysis of objects and locations in the interstices of established, ossified categories. The chapters in this interdisciplinary volume investigate place in all of its dynamism and complexity: several call into question traditional constructions regarding place in Art History, while others explore the fundamental role that place plays in lived experience. The particular nexus for this collection lies at the intersection and overlap of two major subfields in the history of art: South Asia and the Islamic world, both of which are seemingly geographically determined, yet at the same time uncategorizable as place with their ever-shifting and contested borders. The eleven chapters brought together here move from the early modern through to the contemporary, and span particular monuments and locations ranging from Asia and Europe to Africa and the Americas. The chapters take on the question of place as it operates in more obvious settings, such as architectural monuments and exhibitionary contexts, while also probing the way place operates when objects move or when the very place they exist in transforms dramatically.
