Trehan Research Fund in Arts of the Islamic World

The Trehan Research fund has since 2007 supported public research into Islamic art and material culture at the BGC. It has sponsored seminars, lectures—these in collaboration with the Islamic Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art—and study days. This supplements an institutional commitment to study of the arts of the Islamic world that is registered in our two-year post-doctoral position, held first by Stefan Heidemann (now Professor at the University of Hamburg) and currently by Abigail Balbale, who received her PhD in Middle East Studies from Harvard University.
