Biography
Glaire D. Anderson (Ph.D., HTC/AKPIA at MIT, 2005) is a historian of Islamic art and architecture with a focus on Iberia and North Africa in the early caliphal period. Her publications consider Cordoban aristocratic estates and court culture; women, eunuchs and court patronage in al-Andalus; and the roles of architecture and objects in cultural interchange between medieval Islamic societies and their neighbors. In 2009 Anderson held a fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies, and her work has been recognized by the College Art Association, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Society of Architectural Historians, and the Barakat Foundation. She is Associate Professor of Islamic Art History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and serves on the Executive Board of the Historians of Islamic Art Association as Treasurer.
