Una de las secciones se titula "La Guerra en la Edad Moderna" que coordinan Don Antonio Jiménez Estrella (UGR) y Don Javier Castillo Fernández (ARM). En ella se pretende debatir sobre la misma guerra de rebelión y sobre todos aquellos aspectos que estaban relacionados con la guerra, el ejército y lo militar en los siglos XVI y XVII, en relación a aspectos tan importantes como los escenarios bélicos, las campañas militares, la táctica y tecnología bélicas, la movilización de hombres y recursos, la administración militar, las relaciones del ejército con la sociedad y la economía en la época, el papel desempeñado por las milicias y las tropas de base ciudadana, así como el desarrollo de las guerras de guerrillas y la contrainsurgencia en la época. Para ello, se articula en 6 grandes sesiones temáticas, a las que se adscribirán las comunicaciones:

 

Ejes Temáticos:

  1. La guerra de rebelión morisca del reino de Granada: actores, recursos, campañas y escenarios.
  2. Avances tácticos y tecnológicos en la guerra moderna.

  4. Ejército, sociedad y economía.
  5. Combates y combatientes irregulares: milicias ciudadanas, guerrillas y contrainsurgencia en la época.

Crossing Rivers in Byzantium and Beyond

“It is always dramatic to cross a frontier, even though the frontier is only a brook”
(V. S. Pritchett, Geographical Magazine, December, 1942)

This workshop is organized as part of the project “Byzantine Stone Bridges: Material Evidence and Cultural Meaning,” managed by Dr. Galina Fingarova at the Department of Art History of the University of Vienna. It is generously funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF), Elise-Richter-Program. For further information, see http://bridges.univie.ac.at/.

This project focuses on a long-overlooked aspect of architectural and cultural history – Byzantine stone bridges. It investigates the particularities of this type of architectural monuments built from the fourth to the fifteenth centuries on territories under imperial Byzantine rule. It addresses the following enquiries: 1) reconstructing the significance of Byzantine stone bridges in the context of architectural history by analyzing the structural and technical innovations that are evident in the preserved monuments; and 2) understanding the importance of bridges as sources for a Byzantine cultural and social history, in particular, on a political, symbolic, and metaphorical level.

This workshop will expand on the project’s research questions and methodological approaches by placing these in a broader context. The workshop encourages an interdisciplinary discourse on the unique characteristic of rivers to define territories and boundaries and on their crossing as a means of connection in a real and figurative sense. It seeks to transcend both the territorial and chronological limits of the Byzantine Empire.

Confirmed Keynote: Professor Jim Crow (University of Edinburgh)

Scholars working in the fields of Roman, Late Antique, Byzantine, Medieval, Ottoman, and Middle Eastern Studies
are invited to submit proposals for 20-minute papers connected with but not limited to the following topics:
• Riverine landscapes;

• Ford and ferry;

The year 1999 saw the publication of a collection of articles that was to have a major impact on the study of interreligious polemics and apologetics: The Majlis. Interreligious Encounters in Medieval Islam, edited by Hava Lazarus-Yafeh, Mark R. Cohen, Sasson Somekh and Sidney H. Griffith (Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz). The nine articles in this volume dealt with true or fictitious reports of religious, philosophical and even literary disputations and exchanges said to have taken place at scholarly sessions or literary salons hosted by political or religious leaders in some of the main centres of the Muslim world. Since then, much work has been done on this genre and many new texts have been unearthed that deserve to be edited and analysed.
Apart from presenting new insights into texts that were already known, the specific aim of the proposed conference is to explore such newly discovered texts. And whereas the study of majlis debates has so far dealt mainly with the so-called religions of the Book, that is, besides Islam: Judaism and Christianity,we aim to broaden the scope by including Zoroastrianism as well as Buddhism. However, the conference will not only deal with polemical and apologetical exchanges between members of different communities, but also with intra-religious disputations. We have therefore also solicited papers focusing on exchanges between members of different branches or schools within the same religion that existed in the Islamicate world (e.g. Ismāʿīlī vs. Sunni, Melkite vs. “Nestorian”, Karaite vs. Rabbanite and Samaritan, Mālikī vs. Ḥanafī).
