Gingko aims to inform and educate the interested public and work with scholars to increase understanding of the Middle East and North Africa through publications, public events, student retreats and other cultural activities. Our purpose is to foster constructive, informed and open discussion that gives a voice to a new generation of thinkers and opinion formers, and thereby help bridge an increasingly virulent divide between the West and the MENA region.

The Gingko Arts Series publishes beautiful academic monographs and volumes of collected essays across a range of subjects within the field of Islamic Art. Our most recent book, The Image Debate: Figural Representation in Islam and Across the World was edited by Prof. Christiane Gruber, President-Elect of the Historians of Islamic Art Association (HIAA), and the author of our next publication, The Umayyad Mosque of Damascus: Art, Faith and Empire in Early Islam is by Prof. Alain George, a member of the HIAA Symposium Committee.

You can purchase titles with a 25% HIAA Biennial Symposium discount and free delivery, by using coupon code HIAA2021, which is valid until April 19th, 2021.
