Public Lecture at IAS: Visual Culture of Iranian Twelver Shiism in the Qajar Period

December 7, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

In this public lecture, Marzolph will outline the features relevant for the study of Shii visual culture. By discussing Qajar period images as documented in tile work, lithographed books, and the narrative canvasses of storytellers, Marzolph will document the more “popular” aspects of Shii visual culture. Through the capturing appeal of illustrations that embody the emotional narratives of Shiism’s historical experience, this imagery has contributed decisively to the firm establishment of the Twelver Shii creed in Iran.

This lecture is made possible by the Dr. S.T. Lee Fund for Historical Studies.

This lecture is free and open to the public, but registration is required:https://www.ias.edu/events/st-lee-lecture-0
