AIHV. Co-organization of panel on Islamic glass in the International Association of History of Glass Conference

From the 14th century onwards, the production of glass and glazes is among the large group of things that are partially considered as an Islamic legacy in Europe. There are well known cases such as the Venetian one, where the transfer of knowledge to produce glass came from the straight connection with Islamic territories, entering in Venice, that ended up mastering it so well that started to produce and export mosque lamps back to Islamic territories. The objective of this session is to learn more about such cases in other geographical areas, extending to the circulation of written sources on the production and commerce of glass and glaze. 

The session will be subordinated to the following:

  • Trading and circulation of glass objects from Europe to Islamic regions and the other way around;
  • The influence that the presence of Islamic glasses left in Europe in terms of shapes, decorative features and employment of determined raw materials;
  • The influence of European shapes, decorative features and employment of determined raw materials in the glass production in Islamic territories.

The Morisco Diaspora and Morisco Networks across the Western and Eastern Mediterranean

Update: Fully Virtual Event

Deadline: 1 April 2021
Date: 16-17 September 2021
Place: Amsterdam (The Netherlands) Scientific
Coordinators: Mercedes García-Arenal (mercedes.garciaarenal@cchs.csic.es) and Gerard Wiegers (g.a.wiegers@uva.nl)

This conference aims to bring together scholars who work on the movements of Muslims from Spain to other parts of Europa and the MENA Region between the fall of Granada (1492) and the first half of the seventeenth century. These movements had different contexts and characteristics. Most of the movements were induced by repression of Islam, later the expulsion decree forced Moriscos out of the Peninsula. But there were also movements back to the Peninsula, especially between 1609 and 1640.

We aim to study these movements and the motives of individuals groups to participate in them. We will do so in a comparative perspective with other minority groups, such as the Sephardic Jews, but will also study the responses of the Christian majority and minority groups.
