Shangri La Working Papers in Islamic Art is an online academic series devoted to research on the collections of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. Launched in July 2012, the series functions to facilitate the timely dissemination of scholarly research, much of which remains unpublished. All Scholars-in-Residence from 2012 onwards are required to contribute a paper to the series, as well as to present a public lecture during their residency. Additional contributions are by invitation. DDFIA staff and consultants serve as editors and copy editors for the series.
