University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, 18-19 April 2013, ημερίδα:
"Shared History, Shared Geography: The Ottoman East"

The Ottoman East (defined roughly as the area bounded by Ankara, Mosul, and Kars) has been viewed largely, both by contemporary Ottoman statesmen and modern-day historians, as a periphery of the Ottoman enterprise centered in the imperial capital and western Anatolia. These accounts posit the imperial center as the active agent of history, seeking to civilize or bring order to its borderlands. This workshop will begin to provincialize the center as it attempts to understand the Ottoman East on its own terms.

The workshop seeks to bring together younger scholars (graduate students engaged in research or those having defended their dissertations in the last three years) studying the Ottoman East for the period 1839-1950. Emphasizing an interdisciplinary and connected approach, submissions should consider: . center-periphery relations/locality/provinciality: what did the state mean in the Ottoman East? . tax collection and land issues . trans-imperial networks and agents . cosmopolitanism/parochialism . the circulation of people, money, ideas, and goods . cultural aspects (nomadic culture, provincial literature, folklore, etc.) . inter-communal relations/sectarianism/ethnic divisions . social geography . gender and sexuality

Ολλανδία, Leiden University, 13-14 /5/2013, ημερίδα για το παραδοσιακό Ισλάμ και τη Δύση
"Europe and Hajj in the Age of Empires: Muslim Pilgrimage prior to the Influx of Muslim Migration in the West"

During the colonial age in particular, European and Ottoman empires had brought the Hajj under surveillance primarily for political reasons and interests in the control of steamship and the fear for the growth of Pan-Islamic networks. Another important motive for their scrutiny of Hajj was their anxiety for the spread of epidemic diseases in their colonies after the pilgrims' return. On the other hand, indigenous Muslims in Central and Eastern Europe, Muslim emigrants (especially in Great Britain, France and somehow in Germany) and European converts to Islam in other parts of Europe, were making their way to the Hajj and had left behind interesting accounts, such as diaries, published and un-published travelogues, press items in European newspapers, etc. European and non-European national and private archives enlist fascinating political, medical, religious and social reports of such narratives.

The symposium will investigate these European connections with the Hajj on these various levels. A particular focus will be placed on new research methods and results on the basis on national and personal archives and contemporary writings that so far have widely been ignored in the study of Hajj as part of European history. Among the questions which will be addressed: What do first-hand primary sources (especially archives) tell us about the European political perception of the Hajj? How did the international character of the Hajj as a Muslim sacred ritual influence European policies in their struggle for supremacy on the Muslim world? How did Muslims in Europe experience the logistic, economic, religious and spiritual aspects of the Hajj?

"Sea Changes: Mediterranean and Maritime Perspectives on History and Culture", Mediterranean Seminar/UCMRP in Mediterranean Studies
This gathering invites scholars of the humanities and social science engaged in the study of maritime environments - in particular, the application of Oceanic models (pertaining to the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, Pacific, or Indian Oceans, etc.) to the study of the history of human society and culture. Rather than pure research presentations or case studies, Papers should engage explicitly and directly with the Mediterranean and/or Oceanic Studies as methodological frames or emerging disciplines.
Themes include:
- "In the sea" or "of the sea? The practica of maritime methodologies; geographical determinism and/or human adaptations;
- Revelations and revisions: What the sea brings to scholarship.
- The historiography and reception of the sea in scholarship

Καίμπριτζ, 8-10/7/2013, συνέδριο με θέμα τη Μεσόγειο κατά τον Μεσαίωνα
 "Trade, Travel and Transmission in the Medieval Mediterranean", University of Cambridge (UK), 8-10 July 2013

This inter-disciplinary conference will bring scholars together to explore the interaction of the various peoples, societies, faiths and cultures of the medieval Mediterranean, a region which had been commonly represented as divided by significant religious and cultural differences. The objective of the conference is to highlight the extent to which the medieval Mediterranean was not just an area of conflict but also a highly permeable frontier across which people, goods and ideas crossed and influenced neighbouring cultures and societies.

We invite proposals for papers in the fields of archaeology, art and architecture, codicology, ethnography, history (including the histories of science, medicine and cartography), languages, literature, music, philosophy and religion.
