Un manuscrit coranique chinois de la BnF (Arabe 7270)

Vingt-septième juz’ d’un coran copié en Chine conservé à la BnF (Arabe 7270)
© Gallica

La Bibliothèque nationale de France conserve quatre juz’ (une des trente parties dans lesquelles le Coran est parfois divisé) de coran chinois. L’un de ces juz’ est particulièrement intéressant par son décor et les écritures qui s’y déploient. Le manuscrit ne présente pas de colophon, ce qui rend plus difficile sa remise en contexte.

Le mécénat architectural des femmes dans le monde turco-mongol (XIII-XVe siècles)

Shâh-e Zende, Samarcande © Patlexpat, juin 2011.

Les femmes ont toujours joué un rôle non négligeable dans la vie politique et économique des sociétés du monde islamique. Toutefois, la place sociale qui leur est accordée varie selon le contexte géographique et temporel. Suite aux conquêtes mongoles, puis sous leurs successeurs, les femmes accèdent à une plus grande représentation dans l’espace public turco-iranien. Ces populations nomades d’origine turque venues des steppes de Mongolie, ont une organisation politico-sociale, qui repose sur un système de clans accordant aux femmes un rôle public aussi important qu’inhabituel pour les sociétés musulmanes de l’époque.  Ainsi, lorsque que ces populations adoptent l’islam et la charia, les femmes des milieux aristocratiques se voient notamment dotées de fonds financiers personnels qui ont naturellement conduit à des actes de mécénat où elles apparaissent comme les commanditrices ou les représentantes de la dynastie (voir Coran, IV, versets 7 et 11).

Humans and Nature in the Mediterranean Landscape 

The consequences of global warming, pandemics, and ecological catastrophes serve as painful reminders of the contingency of human history on its natural environment. These issues have provided a forceful impetus to the study of history with environmental considerations in mind, leading to what scholars coined as an ecological turn. Since Fernand Braudel, several conceptualizations of the Mediterranean and its surroundings as a subject of historical research emphasized how common patterns of climate, geography, flora, and fauna give rise to shared models of ecology, agriculture, and social organization. Subsequently, environmental history, as well as various approaches centering on the environment in several other disciplines, inspired scholars working on a broad range of topics related to the history of the Mediterranean and led to the emergence of various perspectives on the problems of nature, landscape, sustainability, environment, and ecology.  

We would like to highlight chase the broad variety of approaches to these topics and to show that themes of nature, environment, and ecology are not only a concern of environmental historians, but they could serve as shared spaces of encounter between scholars arriving from an array of backgrounds and disciplines. To this end, we would like to encourage the application of any participants whose interest relates to these fields, even if they don’t consider themselves “environmental historians proper.” Also, we hope to grope toward a conceptualization of the relations between humans and nature, which complements the agricultural and rural focus of the discipline with a thematization of urban landscapes and spaces as parts of ecologies.

Call for paper – The Urgency of the Digital (IJIA special issue) (Deadline: June 1, 2023)

CALL FOR PAPERS

International Journal of Islamic Architecture (IJIA)

Special Issue: The Urgency of the Digital

Thematic volume planned for July 1, 2025

Proposal submission deadline: June 1, 2023

This special issue focuses on the critical and urgent use of digital tools, interfaces, media, and methods for the study and design of Islamic architecture, cities, and the built environment. Over recent decades, architectural historians, architects, and other specialists of the built environment have drawn increasingly on digitized databases, digital data, and processing software to reimagine the history, documentation, design, and construction of buildings, gardens, and cities wholesale. Representations of historical, contemporary, razed and never-built structures are now fully realizable, and massive corpora of information that once took many months or years to sort can now be analyzed in seconds. Yet, digital tools, infrastructures, and databases bring their own set of concerns. Databases, like all archives, do not merely contain information, they are information. And as such, they bear the marks of the epistemologies that shape them. Digital files are always remediated, meaning that they are the products of multiple human interventions, just as analogue media are. Some of the platforms that facilitate virtual reality simulations of architecture, cities, and transcontinental migrations enjoy an uncomfortable kinship with the pervasive governmental and private surveillance technologies in use today. Artificial intelligence (AI) has enormous potential to transform the way that architects, city planners, and historical preservationists work, and yet racial, gendered, ethnic, and religious biases in the datasets that machine-learning algorithms employ raise questions about the ramifications of these undertakings. Digital frameworks enable more expansive, multi-layered, and speculative investigations of buildings, cities, and spaces, but they also demand rigorous scrutiny.
