We are pleased to announce the publication of the special double issue of the Journal of Islamic Manuscripts (Volume 12, No. 3–4, Autumn–Winter 2021), titled From West Africa to Southeast Asia: The History of Muḥammad al-Jazūlī’s Dalāʾil al-Khayrāt (15th–20th centuries). The ten essays in this volume highlight specific regional corpora, reflect different methodological approaches, and/or articulate connections towards a more comprehensive study of the history of al-Jazūlī’s work. The main goal of the issue was to bring into conversation scholars who work on different Dalāʾil corpora from North Africa, the Ottoman lands, Central Asia, and Southeast Asia.
For a full table of contents:
The majority of the papers in this double issue were presented in a workshop held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (May 17–18, 2019), made possible by The Barakat Trust, New York University Center for the Humanities, New York University Libraries, and The Met’s Department of Islamic Art. The collection of these papers is published by Brill, with additional funds from the University of Vienna’s Faculty of Historical and Cultural Studies.
