14th Colloquium of the Ernst Herzfeld Society for Studies in Islamic Art and Archaeology
The History of Material Cultures and Visual Arts in the Islamic Lands: Current State of Research and New Perspectives
Date: July 5–7, 2018
Venue: University of Strasbourg, Strasbourg, France
Proposal Submission Deadline: March 1, 2018
The history of material cultures and visual arts in the Islamic lands is a relatively young research area, but it has proved to be capable of reflecting critically on itself. Thus, archaeologists, material culture historians and art historians rose to the challenge of Orientalism, questioning their position and perceptions.
The 14th colloquium of the Ernst Herzfeld Gesellschaft will be a general meeting on the current state and the new perspectives of research on Islamic material cultures and visual arts.
Its main objective is to offer an opportunity to present ongoing research projects, to exchange ideas and views, and to discuss practices and experiences on various aspects of the archaeology, material culture and art history of the Islamic or Islamicate worlds. That is why we particularly encourage pre-arranged panels on specific sub-themes addressed from different angles, in the hope of generating unanticipated questions and consistent discussions.
The colloquium begins with a key-note lecture on Thursday, July 5, 2018. It continues with panel sessions on Friday and Saturday, July 6–7. A meeting of the graduate students is scheduled for Thursday, July 5, for which a separate call for papers will be circulated. The annual EHG members’ assembly will be held on Friday or Saturday afternoon.
Registration and participation are FREE for members of the Society.
Pre-arranged panels will preferably include three presentations. It is of course also possible to submit individual papers, which will be presented in open panels. Each presentation should be limited to 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of discussion (or 30 minutes of discussion per panel). The colloquium languages will be English, German, and French.
