About

The Islamic Manuscript Association—in partnership with the Orient-Institut Istanbul, the University of Hamburg's Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures, and the Thesaurus Islamicus Foundation—is pleased to announce that it will hold a one-day symposium entitled Decorated Papers in Early Modern Islamic Manuscript Cultures at the Orient-Institut Istanbul on Saturday, 23 November 2019.

The symposium will examine a diverse array of topics concerning the production, circulation, and utilization of coloured and decorated papers in early modern Islamic manuscript cultures in China, the Indian subcontinent, Greater Iran, Central Asia, the Ottoman Empire, and Europe. The ten speakers will present new research on transfer, imitation, and innovation, as well as the material applications and mobility of papers and their technologies. Their research will consider a wide range of manuscripts—including sacred texts, literature, poetry, artists' manuals, and anthologies and albums produced and consumed both by elites and commoners—and elucidate how various types of decorated papers shaped, or were shaped by, manuscript cultures both within and beyond the borders of the Islamic world and demonstrate how these technologies had a dramatic and transformative impact upon early modern societies across the globe.

Please note that some speakers will present in English and others in Turkish. Interpretation will not be available. Admission to the symposium is free of charge, but advance registration is required.

For any queries regarding the symposium or the Association, please contact admin@islamicmanuscript.org.
