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.

(Extended) Deadline for submissions: 31 December 2023

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.
