Research Topic: Ephemeral Edifices: Imperial Tents in the Late Ottoman Period
Ashley Dimmig is in her fourth year of the Ph.D. program in the History of Art Department at the University of Michigan, where she focuses on Islamic art history with Dr. Christiane Gruber. Ashley has earned two Master’s degrees in Art History—one from Indiana University Bloomington and a second from Koç University in Istanbul, as well as a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. For the 2015-2016 academic year Ashley holds the Ekrem Hakkı Ayverdi Fellowship in Ottoman Architectural Culture and History at the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations in Istanbul. While in residence in Istanbul Ashley will conduct her dissertation research on imperial tents in the late Ottoman period—a subject she has begun to explore in an article published in July 2014 in an edited volume of the International Journal of Islamic Architecture. She also recently co-curated an exhibition at the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology in Ann Arbor, and co-authored the exhibition catalogue, “Pearls of Wisdom: The Arts of Islam at the University of Michigan.”
