Encounters in Sindh: Circuits of Mobility and Artistic Transmission at the Makli Necropolis
Fatima Quraishi, Ph.D. Candidate, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University
Fatima Quraishi is completing her dissertation at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University. Her dissertation, “Necropolis as Palimpsest: The Cemetary of Makli in Sindh, Pakistan”, traces the development of a modest Sufi shrine that grew to become a monumental funerary site. Her other interests include illustrated manuscripts produced in Kashmir in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
