Islamic Art in Exchange – Call for Papers

18th Colloquium of the Ernst Herzfeld-Gesellschaft | Ernst Herzfeld Society

Munich (Germany), Museum Fünf Kontinente 6–8 July 2023

Sometimes marked as the ‘global shift’ or the ‘decolonial turn’, fields within the Humanities have, since the 1980s, gradually opened up for cultures in regions beyond the West. Art History and Archaeology concerned with the so-called Islamic world, too, have experienced increased interest in exchange – be it an interaction of different places, cultures and/or times within regions dominated by Muslims, or communication with areas beyond the main lands of Islam. Of particular interest in these scholarly investigations are the nature of the transfer as well as the various levels of cultural appropriation or translation taking place when things and ideas travel from one cultural area to the next.
