Material Entanglements in the Islamic World: New Approaches to Islamic Archaeology and Ceramics

Monday 19 November 2018 - Wednesday 21 November 2018
Van Steenis
Einsteinweg 2
2333 CC Leiden

This meeting sets out to discuss Islamic archaeology as a vibrant discipline and explore the creative, dependent, and conforming uses of materials and sites. Material entanglements in Islamic Worlds asks: How do material entanglements help to cut across traditional classifications and taxonomies in Islamic archaeology? How can notions of entanglement be usefully transposed to understand continuity and change in ceramics, other cultural forms and sites?

The symposium will be organised as part of the ‘Guiding Travelers’ programme at Leiden University and funded by Global Interactions Leiden.
