Dear all, 

I'm delighted to inform you that this year, we will be running the third consecutive EAA session on Islamicate Archaeology in Europe, at the EAA conference in Bern, 4th-7th September. 

We welcome submissions from anybody working on Islamic(ate) archaeology in Europe, or related themes. Please find further details below. 


Session #376 
ISLAMICATE ARCHAEOLOGY IN EUROPE 

Deadline: 14th Feb 2019 
Submit a paper or poster for our session here: https://submissions.e-a-a.org/eaa2019/ 

Organised by: CN Duckworth, Vladimir Koval, JC Carvajal Lopez, Leonid Beliaev, and DJ Govantes Edwards 

All too often, the archaeology of Islamicate societies in Europe finds an awkward fit in European historical narratives, attaching to but not interacting with them, which leads to them being studied separately from their more recognisable European (i.e. Christian) counterparts. This leads to the substantial remains of Islamicate archaeological heritage being presented, outside very restricted academic circles, as the manifestation of a timeless, ahistorical and orientalist reality. The only historical role of these societies seems to have been to interrupt the "natural" historical evolution of some European regions or, in some cases, to act as passive instrument for the construction of the national genealogies of European nations.

This simplifies the interpretation of these societies through the lens of Eurocentric perspectives on the East, which boils down the complexity of non-European societies into a fixed set of clichés that require little theorisation. Furthermore, though it typically recognises the colonial nature of the Islamic conquest, it ignores the colonialist phenomena that resulted in the demise of these societies, which are covered by the umbrella of various "reconquistas" and "processes of independence".

This will be the third EAA session on Islamicate archaeology in Europe, following initial successes in 2017 and 2018. We welcome papers on Islamicate cultural heritage and archaeology in, or significantly relevant to, Europe.
