Profile Information

Title:
Program Head
Location (City or Town):
Cambridge, MA
About Me or Reason for Joining the GEC:
Sharon currently serves as Program Head for the Aga Khan Documentation Center at MIT Libraries. Sharon came to MIT after nearly eight years in the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture Documentation Center at Harvard University where she served as Visual Materials Cataloger and, most recently, as Visual Resources Librarian for Islamic Art and Architecture. At MIT, Sharon is responsible for creating, developing, and leading a full array of services and programs in support of the faculty, students, and researchers of the Aga Khan Program for Islamic Architecture. Located within MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning, AKPIA MIT is focused on Islamic architecture, urbanism, visual culture, and conservation. Sharon also heads ArchNet’s current Digital Library while overseeing the development and implementation of the Digital Library for ArchNet 2.0.

Sharon holds a BA (summa cum laude) and MA in art history. She received her PhD from the Graduate Program for History and Theory of Art and Architecture at Binghamton University. Her dissertation, “Planned Grandeur:
A Commensurate Study of Urban Expansion in Early Modern Italy and Mamluk Egypt,” explored a similar trajectory in two different cultural milieus through an examination of the conscious redefinition of urban space during the late 15th century in Florence and Cairo. She continues to research material culture and urbanization in the cross-cultural realm of the Early Modern Mediterranean.
