About Amy Newhall

Like so many people, I began my romance with Egypt at a young age; Egyptology was it! However, in college I encountered the Islamic world while spending eight months in Turkey. A three-year stint at the American University in Cairo while in pursuit of an M.A. cemented my interest in Islamic art and architecture and led to a PhD from Harvard on the subject. Along the way I have pursued ceramics, Mamluk art and architecture, the urban history of Cairo, and revivalism, and academic freedom.
