Welcome to the Khalili Research Centre website

The Khalili Research Centre (KRC) is the University of Oxford's centre for research into the art and material culture of the Islamic societies of the Middle East and of their non-Muslim members and neighbours. It is also the University's centre for teaching the subject, especially to graduate students, but also to undergraduates. The KRC is part of the Faculty of Oriental Studies in the University, and is administered by a director and a management committee appointed by and answerable to the Board of the Faculty.
