Description

The aim of this conference is to give a new impetus to the study of Islamic inscriptions by bringing together leading scholars from the fields of history, art and language. In addition to the issues raised above, contributions will consider how inscriptions convey meaning through their placement, script, language, and quotations from textual sources ranging from the Qur’an to poetry. It will also consider the purpose and characteristics of bilingual inscriptions.

This conference is organised jointly by the AUC’s Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies, and the Centre for Anatolian and East Mediterranean Studies at the University of St Andrews.
