Write a précis of 500 words minimum of the assigned excerpt by Oleg Grabar: “Symbolic Appropriation of the Land.” In the book, The Formation of Islamic Art, pp. 45-74. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1987. I’ve attached the file below.
Your précis should demonstrate comprehension of the author’s main points, supporting evidence, methodology, and essay structure. In your last 1 or 2 paragraphs, express your opinion of the effectiveness and value of the ideas and arguments made. Also state what aspects of the works were not addressed and suggest a direction future research on these monuments might take.
Format: double-spaced Times New Roman 12-point font in black ink.
