Re-Mapping Representations of Exchange between Early Modern Islam and Europe

A three-week college and university faculty seminar for sixteen participants on the impact of exchange between European and Muslim societies on early modern cultural, technological, and artistic innovation.

This three-week summer seminar for college and university faculty, tentatively scheduled for June 13 through July 2, 2010, at the University of Maryland, will investigate the legacy of Islamic trading networks on European culture and art during the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries. Its focus is upon the exchange of ideas, scientific discoveries, and artistic methods between Muslim and European cultures. It will be especially relevant for those teaching art history, history, languages, literatures, and religious studies.
