The ERC project MMS-II invites contributions to its three-day closing conference in Cairo (Egypt) in November 2021. We welcome papers that engage with the rich Arabic historiographical traditions of the ‘Mamluk’ Sultanate of Cairo (seventh/thirteenth-tenth/sixteenth centuries), and that question in particular the complex contextual, textual or semiotic layers which connect texts of history in diverse ways to the social, cultural and above all political environments of their production, reception and circulation.

Deadline for paper proposals: April 1, 2021

Conference languages: English, Arabic
