Subject Fields: 
Arabic History / Studies, Assyriology, Classical Studies, Islamic History / Studies, Medieval and Byzantine History / Studies

The development of the historical profession in the Arab World since 1945 has received scant attention from Western scholars of the region. This is particularly the case regarding modern Arabic studies on Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Even in the field of medieval Islamic history, there is generally little awareness on the part of scholars based in the West, about the research and publications of their colleagues in the Arabic-speaking countries. As a consequence, Arabic secondary sources are rarely utilized and reviewed by Western historians of the medieval Islamic period.

In partibus fidelium. Missions in the Levant and understanding the Christian East (XIX-XXIth centuries)

November 27, 2017 to November 29, 2017
Location: 
Italy
Subject Fields: 
Arabic History / Studies, Assyriology, Contemporary History, Middle East History / Studies, Religious Studies and Theology

This international conference will look at the assimilation in Europe of knowledge concerning Eastern Christian cultures, especially from the last third of the XIXth century, and the role the missions played in this process. This new understanding is largely founded on research conducted in the field in the Middle East, particularly on manuscripts kept in the monasteries and patriarchates, and more generally on the literary, linguistic, archaeological, cartographic and musicological heritage of the Christian communities in place there.

Subject Fields: 
Archaeology, Assyriology, Classical Studies, Religious Studies and Theology, Ancient History

For the fourth issue of the Distant Worlds Journal we welcome contributions (3000–6000 words) in English or German from the various disciplines of ancient studies. The topic of this issue is: "Humans and society". If we take into account that humans possess a range of emotional and intellectual faculties, we can begin to conceptualize the individual human in antiquity both in relation to external entities, organizations, and institutions and as an integral member of his or her society. We might therefore ask: How does an individual engage with his or her immediate environment?
