CALL FOR PAPERS: Glass in the Islamic World

19th Colloquium of the Ernst Herzfeld-Gesellschaft | Ernst Herzfeld Society

Vitrocentre Romont, Switzerland, 4-6 July 2024

In the field of Islamic art, glass continues to be one of the less researched media. While glass mosaics, stucco glass windows or blown glass produced in the region aroused the interest of scholars in the emerging disciplines of Islamic archaeology and art history in the 19th and early 20th centuries, its study increasingly lost importance in the course of the 20th century and is now largely confined to specialized circles, even though glass has always played a significant role in the art and architecture of the Islamic world.
