Converging Paths has launched  a new initiative to enable audiences to ask their burning questions about the artistic culture of the Islamic world to leading experts in the field. This is also a great opportunity to get an insight into the professional and day-to-day life of our specialists.

This month, Zeynep Yürekli, Associate Professor of Islamic Art and Architecture, University of Oxford, and member of The Barakat Trust’s Academic Advisory Committee answers our questions.  Her interests are: Ottoman art and architecture, Sufi art, and manuscripts.
