“Language Contact and Cultural Translation between the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean, 1400s-1800s”

We plan a transdisciplinary workshop to enhance our analytical tools and to network with colleagues working on subjects related to our project across academic disciplines. The thematic units of the workshop are (1) the diachronic and synchronic circulation of manuscripts, (2) concepts of cultural translation, (3) religious literary cultures. Participants include scholars from Arabic and Islamic Studies, South Asian Studies, Jewish Studies, Philosophy, and History. The workshop will be organised in Münster. More information follows soon.
