Call for Paper – Expanding Islamic Art Historiography: The 1873 Vienna World’s Fair Conference, November 12–13, 2021, University of Vienna, Deadline : 18 apr. 2021

CfP: This conference aims to look at the Vienna Fair as an intersection of processes and phenomena that contributed to Islamic art historiography. As the sesquicentennial is approaching, theconference will explore the Fair as spaces for exhibiting Islamic arts and architecture, for their commercial and artistic reception, and for setting scholarship in motion.

Looking through the lens of the Fair and investigating its making and impact reveals processes that contributed to perceiving and categorising, collecting and studying, institutionalising and commercialising Islamic art, within international, national, and local perspectives.

Ties of Kinship and the Early Islamic Empire

Leiden, 6-8 December 2021

Decorative

Birth of Zal, from a copy of the Shahnama (TheMet collection, open-access)

We invite submissions for an international conference on the language of kinship in Islamic(ate) societies before the modern period (622–1500 CE). The Embedding Conquest (EmCo) team has been investigating the social, political, administrative, religious, and economic ties that sustained strategies and mechanics of protection and dependency in the early Islamic empire, contributing to shaping imperial rule under the Umayyads and the Abbasids. As part of our project, we study how writers and document producers expressed vertical and horizontal relationships, including the use of family terms. We now invite other researchers to join in our conversation focusing on relational ties that were expressed primarily through or as kinship. This international meeting will be a venue for presenting new studies about practices, categories, and discourses through which kinship might :

Call for Paper – 1st International Conference on Relic Studies – RelicS 2021

November 24-27 2021

Call for Papers February 28th, 2021 

We have the pleasure to announce the 1st edition of the International Conference on Relic Studies – RelicS 2021 organized by CITAR in partnership with the HERCULES Laboratory of the University of Évora. It will take place at the School of Arts of Universidade Católica Portuguesa (Porto, Portugal), between the 24th and 27th of November 2021.  The relic, as a physical, rare and valuable remnant of a lost or destroyed religious past, as well as of great spiritual and sensory value, is a vast and complex subject due to the multiplicity of research, conservation and valuation perspectives that it raises. Despite the diversity of studies on relics and their reliquaries, both national and international, the sharing of knowledge on this subject is scarce, focusing mainly on issues of historical and anthropological nature. Thus, RelicS 2021 aims to foster interdisciplinary cross-studies, projects, strategies and artistic practices based on multiple and multidisciplinary approaches. In 2021 we will have the opportunity to bring together different scientific areas, in order to foster discussion and share knowledge around a non-consensual and sensitive topic. We hope to see you in Porto in November 2021.

2020 Conference: Queer Conditions/Kuir Haller: Social and Political Change in an Age of Authoritarianism – Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program – May 29-30, 2020

Each year, the Keyman Modern Turkish Studies Program brings together scholars from around the world to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing Turkey from a global perspective. This year the conference’s focus will be on Queer and Gender Studies.  The primary aim of the conference is to engage with the global debate taking place on intersectionality.  More specifically, we are interested in analyzing the role of gender identity and dynamics in facilitating the reproduction of power structures, and in the mobilization of historically marginalized groups seeking to expose, challenge, and ultimately dismantle those structures.   By examining emergent forms of these justice-seeking struggles, the conference this year will direct the scholarly gaze on shifting relationships and opportunities for political action in a deeply polarized Turkey.
