Olga Bush

Edinburgh Studies in Islamic Art

  • Takes an inter-medial approach integrating the study of poetic inscriptions, textiles and court ceremonial into the discussion of architecture
  • Inter-disciplinary, combining art history, optics and literary studies
  • Case studies explore specific, relatively neglected spaces within the Alhambra
  • Informed by both medieval and contemporary theory
  • Considers the most recent technical analyses to distinguish clearly original elements
