The Aga Khan University Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilisations (London, UK) and the Aga Khan Museum (Toronto, Canada) in partnership with Brill (Leiden, NL) publish a peer-reviewed, academic Journal of Material Cultures in the Muslim World (MCMW). The journal is published in full Open Access and accepts submissions in English, French, German and Spanish, and short reports in Arabic, Persian and Turkish with an English abstract.

Aiming to be a new reference for field archaeologists, (art) historians, anthropologists, curators, and scholars and students of the archaeology, art history, architecture, anthropology and ethnography of the Muslim world, the journal represents a new, broader definition of material culture that includes not only artefacts, architectural structures and monuments, but also crafts. The Journal of Material Cultures in the Muslim World aims to inform other disciplines and historiographies and also focuses on under-explored Muslim regions outside of the Middle East and North Africa.

The journal is published bi-annually and you can access all issues HERE.
