Call for abstracts / Workshop “Historiography of the Perception of Islam through Manuscripts, Korans and their Displacement”, 11 February 2020 in Naples (Italy) — LIMITE : 30/11/2019
Open call for applications to participate in the Workshop “Historiography of the Perception of Islam through Manuscripts, Korans and their Displacement”
Scope: The aim of this workshop is to approach the question of the relationship between Christianity and Islam through the study of the production, circulation and uses of Arabic manuscripts, and mainly Korans, in the late medieval and early modern Mediterranean Europe. Our assumption is that the Balkans, Italy and the Iberian Peninsula form an axis of circulation which is especially significant for our understanding of the Mediterranean Sea as a comprehensive space of cultural, political and religious contact. The Workshop is jointly coordinated with the MINECO Project “Orientalismo y verdad: la influencia de la erudición oriental en el desarrollo del pensamiento crítico en la España Moderna”, (FFI2017-86538-P), IP’s: Fernando Rodríguez Mediano y Mercedes García-Arenal.
Deadline and details: Researchers interested to participate in the workshop are invited to submit their proposals with a title, an abstract (no more than 300 words) and a brief bio (maximum of 10 lines) to Dr Roberto TOTTOLI (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Fernando RODRÍGUEZ MEDIANO (email@example.com) before November 30, 2019.
