Abstract: Studying the relations between Christianity and Islam in late medieval and early modern Europe and the Mediterranean means to cover a vast geographical region, which is diverse in its languages and cultures. Against this background it is necessary to find a common ground that makes it possible to understand the exchange between these two cultures as one border-crossing phenomenon. To achieve this comprehensive understanding, it is necessary to identify overarching ideas and common terms that are widely used in this field of research. Some of these terms are used analogically or even equivalent in different languages, which emphasizes the fact that there were similar images circulating throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. Therefore, the aim of this project is to discuss each of the 5 below terms in the context of their historiographies and how they were shaped by then prevailing notions.

Topics (terms) to be addressed:

  1. Orient-Occident, Morgenland-Abendland, Doğu-Batı
  2. Coexistence, Convivencia
  3. Hybridity
  4. Border-Frontier, Center-Periphery, Holy Land 5. Reconquista, Rückeroberung, Fetih

Deadline and Details: Each proposal for an article should discuss one term, respectively one set of terms. The variations of the terms are not limited to the languages used above and can be complemented by translations into other languages. Proposals should not exceed one page (12 pt.), please also submit a short bio (250 words). The selected proposals will be presented during a workshop organized by the COST Action in Bosnia Harzegovina (University of Sarajevo), September 7, 2021.
