The course paper is a comprehensive critical analysis of a postcard from the collection of the Department of Archives and Special Collections located at the William H.
Hannon Library. You will select a postcard with an image representing a building/monument or object from the Islamic world to research. You will have the opportunity
to work with postcards as primary research material during our class visit to the Archives on March 15. You may select your postcard during our class visit or you can
make a research appointment and return to select a postcard later. You will research the building/object represented on your postcard and write a paper discussing the
significance of the representation of this building/object for our understanding of the Muslim world. Your analysis should be informed by the theoretical issues
related to colonial discourse discussed in the readings posted on Blackboard in the folder titled â€œPostcardsâ€ as well as your own research related to your specific
building/object represented on your postcard. ***** POSTCARD CHOSEN OF BLUE MOSQUE IN ISTANBUL (SULTAN AHMET MOSQUE) PLEASE NON ONLINE SOURCES LIKE MENTIONED.
