Seminar “Feminist Ethics and the Test of Palestine: Beyond ‘Feminist Foreign Policy’?”
[open]
  • This seminar considers the current genocide in Gaza from the perspective of feminist foreign policy (FFP). In theory, this approach foregrounds feminist ethics and human security in its emphasis on “rights, representation, and resources” for gender equality. However, critical explorations are necessary to unpack how Feminist Foreign Policy (FFP) operates in practice, and where it falls short of declared commitments. The seminar raises questions about ‘activating’ normative paradigms in international politics. What horizons exist for activism when state and global governance institutions fail to stop genocide and war? How can (feminist) researchers navigate theory and practice when it comes to struggles for liberation and social justice?
  • Program:
  • 14:00–14:10. Introduction (Emi Goto, ILCAA, TUFS)
  • 14:10–15:10. Lecture by Dr. Layla Saleh “Feminist Ethics and the Test of Palestine”
  • 15:10–15:50. Q&A, Discussion
  • 15:50–16:00. Closing
  • Lecturer:
  • Dr. Layla Saleh is a political scientist specializing in politics and International Relations (IR) of the Arab region. Her focus is on ‘politics from below’ as it relates to protest, revolution, civic activism, democratization, and gender politics. She is Director of Research at Demos-Tunisia Democratic Sustainability Forum, and Associate Editor of the Brill journal Protest. In 2024, she is a Research Fellow at Chiba University. Her books include Revolution and Democracy in Tunisia (Oxford UP, 2024, co-authored with Larbi Sadiki) and US Hard Power in the Arab World: Resistance, the Syrian Uprising, and the War on Terror (Routledge, 2017).

ILCAA Joint Research Project “Adaptation and Reorientation of Texts and its Actors in the Medieval and Early Modern Middle East” The 2nd meeting
[open]
  • 15:30–15:45. Dr. Yui KANDA (ILCAA) Introduction
  • 15:45–16:15. Dr. Kaori OTSUYA (NIHU/ILCAA) “Jadhb al-Qulūb ilā Diyār al-Maḥbūb by ʿAbd al-Ḥaqq Muḥaddith al-Dihlawī (d. 1052/1642): A Persian Work Based on Al-Samhūdī’s (d. 911/1506) History of Medina?”
  • 16:15–17:00. Discussion
  • Abstract:
  • Dr. Kaori OTSUYA (NIHU/ILCAA) “Jadhb al-Qulūb ilā Diyār al-Maḥbūb by ʿAbd al-Ḥaqq Muḥaddith al-Dihlawī (d. 1052/1642): A Persian Work Based on Al-Samhūdī’s (d. 911/1506) Histories of Medina?”
  • In recent years, there has been a significant increase in secondary literature on trans-regional cultural exchanges between South Asia and the Red Sea region, particularly from the fifteenth century onwards. Nevertheless, the reception of late medieval Arabic histories of the Hijaz in early modern South Asia remains relatively unexplored, partly due to the limited engagement of so-called “Arabists” in the discussion as well as the conventional division between the medieval and the early modern periods.
  • This paper seeks to address this gap through a preliminary analysis of Jadhb al-Qulūb ilā Diyār al-Maḥbūb, a history of Medina written by the well-known South Asian hadith scholar and historian ʿAbd al-Ḥaqq Muḥaddith al-Dihlawī (d. 1052/1642). While researchers working on the history of South Asia have briefly but often mentioned that ʿAbd al-Ḥaqq wrote Jadhb al-Qulūb based on the histories of Medina by the late medieval Egyptian scholar al-Samhūdī (d. 911/1506), the relationship between Jadhb al-Qulūb and al-Samhūdī’s histories of Medina has largely escaped the attention of modern researchers in the field of the late medieval Arabic historiography.
  • After introducing al-Samhūdī and ʿAbd al-Ḥaqq, this paper presents the wide distribution of the manuscripts of their works as well as the findings of a tentative comparison between Jadhb al-Qulūb and al-Samhūdī’s histories of Medina. In doing so, it hopes to shed light on transregional interactions between South Asia and the Red Sea region from the Hijazi perspective.

Global Mediterranean Studies Seminar: Nile Samurai--Ragai Wanis and Egypt’s Global 1960s
[open]
  • This seminar explores Egypt's cultural connections with Japan in the 1960s. It discusses exchanges between these two ends of Asia through a case study of the late Egyptian artist Ragai Wanis (1938-2023), who studied and worked in Japan for five years in the mid-1960s. Drawing on a range of sources-Wanis's published memoirs, his paintings, and his photographs-a vibrant period of transregional entanglements will be revealed. Ultimately, by examining individual stories like Wanis's, the talk offers an alternative narrative for the Arab 1960s, shifting the focus away from political dimensions and pan-Arab solidarities to highlight how Egypt explored different ways of relating to the world during this period.
  • 17:30–17:40. Introduction (Emi Goto, ILCAA, TUFS)
  • 17:40–18:25. “Nile Samurai: Ragai Wanis and Egypt’s Global 1960s” (Nicholas Mangialardi, Williams College)
  • 18:25–18:40. Comment (Yui Kanda, ILCAA, TUFS)
  • 18:40–19:30. Discussion
  • This talk investigates Egypt’s cultural connections with Japan during the 1960s. It discusses exchanges between these far ends of Asia through a case study of the late Egyptian artist Ragai Wanis (1938–2023), who studied and worked in Japan for five years in the mid-sixties. I draw on a range of sources—Wanis’ published memoirs, his paintings, and photographs—to uncover a vibrant period of transregional entanglements. Ultimately, by examining individual stories like that of Wanis, this talk offers an alternative narrative for the Arab 1960s, shifting focus away from political dimensions and pan-Arab solidarities to highlight how Egypt was exploring other way of relating globally during this period.
  • Speakers:
  • Dr. Nicholas Mangialardi is a scholar of Arabic literature and music whose research focuses on modern Egypt. He is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Arabic Studies at Williams College (USA). His publications have appeared in the International Journal of Middle East Studies, the Arab Studies Journal, and the Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication.

Global Mediterranean Studies Seminar: Fumio Koizumi and the Cultural Politics of Music in Modern Egypt
[open]
  • In January 1964, the Japanese ethnomusicologist Fumio Koizumi arrived in Cairo, Egypt. He had been invited by the local government to serve as an organizer and judge for Egypt’s first International Folk Arts Festival. But Koizumi also remained for another three months to conduct research on Egyptian music, traveling up and down the Nile to record folk songs, children’s games, Coptic hymns, Sufi ceremonies, new orchestral works, and much more. The extensive project resulted in the six-disc set entitled Songs along the Nile (Nairu no Uta, 1966). This talk explores Koizumi’s visit to examine an overlooked era of collaborations between Egypt and Japan in the 1960s. Drawing on his recordings, travel notes, and other archival documents, I show how Koizumi became enmeshed in Egypt’s state-sponsored cultural activities. My analysis frames this figure within a broader series of mid-century global flows that help us understand the ways in which Egypt displayed itself to others and through others.
  • Abstract:
  • 14:00–14:10. Introduction (Emi Goto, ILCAA, TUFS)
  • 14:10–15:00. Fumio Koizumi and the Cultural Politics of Music in Modern Egypt (Nicholas Mangialardi, Williams College)

Islamic Trust Studies Symposium“Freedom of speech and academic freedom on the verge of crisis: Reexamining discourses on ‘antisemitism’ and the Israel–Palestine question through an event of Ghassan Hage,” co-sponsored by Prof. Yoshikazu Shiobara’s seminar at Keio University
[open]
  • “Islamic Trust Studies Symposium “Freedom of speech and academic freedom on the verge of crisis: Reexamining discourses on ‘antisemitism’ and the Israel–Palestine question through an event of Ghassan Hage,” co-sponsored by Prof. Yoshikazu Shiobara’s seminar at Keio University will be held by X00 Organizer of “Islamic Trust Studies” Project.
  • Program:
  • 1. Yoshikazu Shiobara (Sociology, Faculty of Law, Keio University) “The crisis of critical discourses and the solidarity: Unfolding ‘The statement in support of Professor Ghassan Hage from concerned scholars and citizens in Japan’”
  • 2. Mayuko Maekawa (Cultural Anthropology, Faculty of Sociology, Kyoto Sangyo University) “A brief introduction to the works of Ghassan Hage”
  • 3. Kenichiro Komori (History of European thought, Faculty of Humanities, Musashi University) “Nationalism as anti-antisemitism: A case of Germany”
  • 4. Hidemitsu Kuroki (Area Studies of the Arab East, ILCAA, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies) “Cognitive warfare on terrorism and civilization: Why are we easily beaten?”
  • Moderator: Jin Noda (Central Asia Studies, ILCAA, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies)
  • Purpose of the symposium:
  • Prof. Ghassan Hage is a world-renowned anthropologist for various stimulating works including the following Japanese translations: White Nation: Fantasies of White Supremacy in a Multicultural Society, Against Paranoid Nationalism: Searching for Hope in a Shrinking Society, and Alter-Politics: Critical Anthropology and the Radical Imagination. After leaving Australia, Prof. Hage started his new research activities at the Max Planck Society in 2023, but he was dismissed from his post for his statement criticizing the Israeli ethnic cleansing/genocide in Gaza, Palestine.
  • It was a shocking news as this kind of appalling measure was taken in Germany against the researcher, who has raised, through his works, very important questions on how multicultural/multiethnic human societies should be.
  • Moreover, this news revealed that the Western societies, which were expected to respect the freedom of thought and speech, significantly harm the potential of academic contributions to human society and shed light on the long-hidden aspects of the Israel–Palestine question (similar cases were found against Judith Butler in France, Masha Gessen and Nancy Fraser in Germany, and three university presidents in the United States: Harvard, MIT, and Pennsylvania). Prof. Hage’s case evoked a worldwide response but does not seem to be broadly known to the Japanese population, apart from concerning researchers.
  • At this symposium, through discussions by a sociologist and an anthropologist who have played a leading role in introducing Prof. Hage’s works and other researchers of the history of European thought and the Arab East, a sense of crisis will be shared: we are standing at an extremely critical crossroad in the general sphere of scholarship/research, as well as in the realities of international politics.

  • Abstracts
  • “Belletristic Presentations of Princely Governance during the 1469-70 Timurid Succession Crisis”
  • Colin Mitchell Largely stepping into the vacuum left by Timur and his descendants in Azarbaijan and central Iran, the Aq Qoyunlu developed a semblance of a Perso-Islamic court culture while at the same time maintaining structures, institutions, titles, and rankings associated with Turkish tribal politics (pace J. Woods). The chancellery is very much emblematic of this hybridism, and this paper seeks to examine the Aq Qoyunlu production of letters in the tradition of insha (epistolography) to better understand how this particular state understood the appointment and mandate of royal family members (i.e. princes) for positions of governance. Nowhere is this better seen than during the aftermath of Uzun Hasan’s defeat of the Timurid ruler, Abu Said at the Battle of Qarabagh in 1469. Curiously, Uzun Hasan made a conscious decision to not appoint one of his sons as the governor of the newly conquered city of Herat, but rather nominated Yadgar Muhammad Mirza. Yadgar Muhammad Mirza was one of many competing descendants of Timur who were making claims to the Timurid throne, and Uzun Hasan openly used him as a proxy. Uzun Hasan sent supplies, men, and guidance to this young Timurid prince in his civil conflict with his cousin, Sultan Husain Baiqara. These events of 1469-70 – Yadgar’s invasion of Khurasan, the displacement of Sultan-Husain Baiqara from Herat, the successful counterattack by the Timurids - are detailed and discussed in a number of letters produced by the chancellery of Uzun Hasan. While the style, tone, and rhetoric are consistent with medieval Perso-Islamic conceptions of monarchical theory and sovereignty, there is no disputing the Turkic predilection for tanistry and succession politics. This paper will examine and analyze these letters in the hopes of better understanding how such literary-administrative texts can shed light on how contemporaries articulated these tensions which exist in the Perso and Turco-Islamic worlds regarding succession practices among competing princes.
  • “Stability by Contract?: The East India Company in Persia 1600-1747”
  • Peter Good The English East India Company’s presence in Persia represents one of the longest non-colonial or imperial relationships of a European state with an Indian Ocean Empire. The Company’s ability to maintain its position as both a trading and diplomatic presence in the Safavid Empire was due to mutually recognised benefits. These included joint military campaigns against the Portuguese (1622), Gulf Piracy, or Arab and Afghan rebels along the littoral of the Persian Gulf. This paper will explore the different and changing methods used and deployed by both parties in order to maintain this valuable cooperation. The Company and the Safavid State enshrined their relationship in an evolving written document, the farmān. However, the farmān alone was rarely sufficient to fully answer all eventualities faced by either party, renegotiations were therefore required to better reflect changing circumstances. These negotiations were often carried out by non-European intermediaries, involving exchanges of gifts, invitations to social events and promises of mutual assistance. This paper will explore how the Anglo-Persian relationship was maintained outside of the formal confines of the written farmān. It will focus on the role of informal contacts, non-European intermediaries and the deployment of formal endorsements by court and local officials. By exploring these often-bilateral exchanges, it is possible to better understand how the Company’s business was interwoven with the local and state policies of the Safavid Empire and its successors. Understanding the balance of power and management of the Anglo-Persian relations has an important impact upon the way we understand the agency of non-European states and peoples in their commercial and diplomatic exchanges. This helps us to understand the multi-valent nature of these interactions, rather than relying solely on Eurocentric views.

International Workshop “Translation and Textual Transmission across Languages and Cultures in Early Modern South Asia”
[open]
  • In early modern South Asia, a wide range of ideas, knowledge, literary conventions and stories were
  • actively transmitted across linguistic, religio-cultural and regional divides, and numerous texts were
  • translated in this process. The translation of Sanskrit texts into Persian around the Mughal emperors is well known, but there was also active transmission of texts and the knowledge they contained across linguistic boundaries in the provinces of the Mughal Empire and in the centres of various other regimes outside the Empire. This workshop aims to highlight the multifaceted nature of early modern South Asian culture by focusing on the various forms of translation and the transmission of knowledge through examples from some regions within early modern South Asia.

  • Abstract
  • Managing Transitions within and beyond post-Ottoman Turkey: The Delegation of the Ankara Government to Istanbul (1922-1928)
  • Orçun Can Okan Milestone events that radically change political landscapes are often followed by efforts to manage these events’ consequences in diplomatic, administrative, and legal terms. In (what became) former Ottoman domains in the 1920s, an institution that undertook efforts of this kind was the Delegation of the Ankara government to Istanbul (Dersaadet Murahhaslığı). This institution represented the Grand National Assembly of Turkey in its relations with foreign diplomatic missions in Istanbul and later facilitated the implementation of stipulations in the peace treaty Turkey signed at the end of World War I in July 1923—the Treaty of Lausanne. Mainly through textual and visual materials incorporated from this institution’s documents housed at “the Ottoman Archives,” this talk discusses its role in the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire and the construction of new regimes in Turkey and the Arab Middle East. Focusing on this institution facilitates interpreting the diplomatic, administrative, and legal issues that had to be addressed amidst political transitions with large scope. By way of illustrating practices of managing state succession through specific examples, the talk advocates new ways to transcend national and regional divides in historical inquiries on the making of the postwar Middle East.

  • 15:30–15:35. Introduction
  • 15:35–16:25. Lecture by Dr. Nicoletta Fazio (Museum of Islamic Art, Doha) “The Most Banal and Exalted: Love and its Discontents in Niẓāmī’s Laylī va Majnūn and the Roman de la Rose”
  • 16:25–17:00. Q&A, Discussion
  • Abstract:
  • Based on the title of my forthcoming publication, this lecture aims to be a presentation about one of the most shared, dare I say universal, experience in human life: heartbreak. Love has been for centuries a theme much exploited by poets and artists. However, a great deal of words has been spent to celebrate love when it breaks, and pain emerges. The story of romantic lovesickness, a form of madness induced by love delusion, is long and dates to millennia. Still, certain topoi and images consolidated around specific times and places, centuries before the widespread popularity that the Romantic Movement enjoyed in the last decades of the 18th century CE.
  • My work investigates the enduring success of lovesickness by looking at its historical and intellectual articulations and diverse cultural interpretations in pre-modern societies. I have picked two distinctive poetic works that have brought lovesickness to the next level and set the pace for whatever else that followed: the masnavi (romantic epos) Laylī va Majnūn by the Persian poet Niẓāmī Ganjavī (ca1188-92 CE), and the allegorical dream poem Roman de la Rose composed, respectively, by Guillaume de Lorris and Jean de Meun (between 1230 and 1275-80 CE). The impact that these poems had on the history of their respective literary traditions cannot be stressed enough, as they emerged in a period when the discourse of and on love progressively took space in the literary arena.
  • Starting from the 12th century CE lyrical production (in Persian and French literary contexts) started making a sensible and progressive shift towards the erotic at the expenses of the heroic, so feeling over action, or what has been dubbed as “the heroism of sentiments”. This while merging erotic and spiritual vocabularies to give new articulations to the sentiment of love and its pangs. Niẓāmī’s Laylī va Majnūn and the Rose became iconic works of literature for their portrayal of excessive love, desire, obsession, madness, and yearning as the driving forces of the narrative.
  • Both poems have survived in numerous manuscript copies, a testimony to their major popularity. Several of these manuscripts have been illustrated leaving a blueprint in their respective literary and artistic traditions while showing the importance of vision and visuality in the construction of the discourse of love and lovesickness. By comparing these two historically disconnected yet thematically related literary discourses and artistic, pictorial traditions, in my work do not aim at establishing homologies. Rather, I look at divergent paths that lead to dissonances, to recognise historical emergences and socio-cultural peculiarities.

  • A Twenty-first-century Turk Studying the Ottoman Empire’s “Arab Provinces” and the Post-Ottoman Arab East: Endeavors in “Foreign Studies”?
  • Orçun Can Okan In the last two decades, the circumstances of producing and sharing historical knowledge on “the Middle East” underwent profound and rapid changes in Turkey. While some of these require analysis in light of wider changes taking place around the world, some require attention within contexts particular to Turkey at particular points in time. This talk reflects on these changes and evolving contexts as experienced by a young(er) Turkish historian who chose to study post-Ottoman Turkey and “the Arab East” in Istanbul in the 2000s. What made this path particularly appealing among other alternatives at the time, in what broader landscapes of intellectual curiosity and academic career options? How did the relevant “field(s)” evolve since then? In addition to sharing tentative assessments on these questions, the talk invites comparison and contrast between different modes of circulation for simplistic generalizations about the Middle East and its peoples. It aims to stimulate conversation on the difficulties of identifying “the foreign(er)” in contexts of entangled imperial pasts, and the likely challenges ahead in efforts to formulate more “inclusive” historical perspectives on those pasts.
  • Connecting with Syrians: Muhammad Ali's Rule over Syria in the 1830s
  • Yusuke Motani This presentation delves into the Egyptian rule of Syria (bilād al-Shām) during the 1830s, exploring how Muhammad Ali Pasha's government sought to forge new ties with local Syrian notables to effectively govern the province. Following military conflict with the Ottoman government from 1831, Muhammad Ali and his government faced the pressing task of establishing amicable relations with Syrian notables and integrating them into governance structures in the newly acquired territory. This period can be viewed as a pivotal phase marked by the emergence of “connectivity” between central political authority and local elites, as the government endeavored to connect to Syrian notables.
  • In examining this era in depth, the presentation will particularly focus on the interactions between the Egyptian administration in Syria and two key groups: the deputy governors (mutasallim) in Syrian towns and the members of the newly established regional councils (majlis al-shūrā) in major Syrian cities. These officials, appointed primarily from local notables, were endowed with discretionary powers by the government, making them play pivotal role in regional administration. By referring to a wealth of archival documents from the Egyptian National Archives (Dār al-Wathā’iq al-Qawmiyya al-Miṣriyya), the presentation aims to elucidate the roles and authorities bestowed upon these actors by the government, in order to assess the level of trust vested in them for governing Syria.
  • A Constitutional Caliphate? An Islamic Monarch in Ottoman Public Law
  • Nobuyoshi Fujinami By the Young Turk Revolution in 1908, a novel conception of Caliphate had taken root in the Ottoman Empire. Liberated from the “Islamic” despotism of Sultan Abdülhamit II, Ottoman intellectuals declared the Caliph to be a constitutional monarch. Legally, the Caliph was an organ of the state, representing the sovereign will of the nation. There was nothing specifically Islamic about his status as monarch. The Ottoman elites, familiar with Western jurisprudence, effectively excluded the Caliph from the public law of the state. In 1911, when the otherwise secular Unionists proposed giving the Caliph greater powers, few took them seriously. Even ulamas criticized the Unionists’ provocation. As their cynical use of the Caliphate demonstrated, Ottoman politicians rarely hesitated to exploit its authority. Beyond the secularist/Islamist dichotomy, the Ottoman Caliphate was de-sacralised in the last years of the empire, and the Ottomans’ attitude towards the Caliph was more opportunistic than Islamic.

    • 16:30–17:00. Discussions
    • Abstracts:
    • Organization and administration of the Emam Reza mausoleum during the Afsharid period
    • Ryuichi Sugiyama The mausoleum of Emam Reza (‘Alī ibn Mūsā al-Riḍā, d. 818) in Mashhad, a city located in the north-eastern part of Islamic Republic of Iran, was mainly developed since the Safavid dynasty, which promoted shiization policies in the Iranian region. Many scholars agree that vaqf endowments have played a great role in the expansion and development of this mausoleum and these vaqf endowments changed it into a religious complex that included mosques and charitable institutions for the pilgrims and the poor in the pre-modern period. Although recent studies about this mausoleum have produced steady results in focusing on each of the vaqf endowments, royal edicts for appointments of administration staff, and documents on revenue and expenditure written in the siyāq script, scholars have never tried to grasp a complete view of this mausoleum as a management unit; therefore, its organization and administration as a religious complex expanded by many vaqf endowments still remains unclear.
    • The aim of this presentation is to elucidate the organization and administration of this mausoleum during the Afsharid period, primarily using a historical material entitled “Ṭūmār-e ‘Alīshāhī.” This material was compiled in 1747 during the reign of the second Afsharid ruler ‘Ādel Shāh in order to learn how to manage the mausoleum as a religious complex before the confiscation of vaqf properties by Nāder Shāh. It is one of the most valuable sources related to the management of this mausoleum due to its recording of detailed data of vaqf properties and other income sources, and provides a complete overview of its administration staff as well as the charitable services offered to pilgrims and the poor during that period. My presentation will reveal the realities of Shiite sacred mausoleum management in pre-modern Iran and examine its characteristics.
    • Illuminating eighteenth-century Persian historical documents: royal decrees of Aḥmad Shāh Durrānī (1747–1772) at the Āstān-i Quds-i Rażawī
    • Andras Barati Given the scarcity of historical sources from eighteenth-century Iran in comparison to earlier and later periods, the use of new and hitherto unknown sources is of great importance. Archival documents represent a group of primary sources that are more difficult to access and have been seldom utilised in the study of this era. The Central Library of the Āstān-i Quds-i Rażawī has preserved five royal decrees promulgated by the first Durrānī ruler, Aḥmad Shāh. In my presentation, I will examine these documents from both a content and diplomatics perspective.
    • Two interlinked areas of Aḥmad Shāh’s policies concerning western Khurāsān become apparent from the decrees: Mashhad and the Āstān-i Quds-i Rażawī. Hence, I will identify the extent of Aḥmad Shāh’s rule over the region and analyse the measures he undertook in relation to the Āstān-i Quds-i Rażawī, with the aim of placing the foundation under his direct oversight.
    • Furthermore, these documents allow us to observe the degree to which earlier Safavid diplomatic elements or Nādir’s innovations were incorporated into Aḥmad Shāh’s edicts. As a result, the decrees not only offer new insights into the historical events from a local and regional standpoint, but also serve as unparalleled sources for the study of chancery practices during that time period and enhance our understanding of the administrative history as seen through diplomatics.

    • Abstracts:
    • The Safavid shrine in society: the shrine’s negotiation with ruling powers and local people in the 18th and 19th Centuries
    • Naofumi Abe Following the collapse of the Safavid dynasty in 1722, the shrine of its eponym Sheykh Safi al-Din encountered various difficulties due to the waning patronage of the ruling dynasties. This study traces the shrine’s agency for survival on the basis of the analysis of the mixture of documents including the royal firmans, legal documents, and others.
    • Royal firmans and governors’ orders were in many cases issued in response to petitions. That is also the case for the shrine of Sheykh Safi; the shrine petitioned to the subsequent ruling powers and local governors on necessity after the fall of the Safavids likewise. Furthermore, Sheykh Safi shrine “itself” created deeds particularly on legal transactions. These documents have come down to us, as we know very well, under the name of the Ardabil Documents or Asnad-e boqʿe-ye Sheykh Safi. Investigating these documents sheds some light on the shrine’s administrative structure and a variety of measures to ensure the survival of the shrine particularly in the turbulent period from the 18th to the early 19th centuries.
    • Safi Shrine’s strategy for survival is not limited to the preservation of the waqf properties. The shrine’s officials sought endorsement from the ruling powers for maintaining order in its administration sometimes for their own sake. We will see the negotiations and entanglement of the variety of actors surrounding the survival of the Safavid shrine.
    • Chessboard ṭughrās on Safavid and Mughal royal decrees: a study in comparative diplomatics
    • Andras Barati One of the most characteristic and enduring elements found on state documents promulgated by the chanceries of Islamic empires is the ṭughrā, the calligraphic emblem of royals and high-ranking bureaucrats. Throughout their extensive history, the design and content of the ṭughrās underwent multiple linguistic and formal changes. However, they were always meant to serve as authentication tools for issued documents. Moreover, due to its inclusion of the name and title of the ruler, it served a similar purpose to the intitulatio in occidental diplomatics.
    • Following the Safavid dynasty’s rise to power, administrative reforms brought the royal decrees with ṭughrās to the brink of extinction. During this period, a fascinating development emerged in the form of a newly designed ṭughrā on the decrees of several Safavid rulers. These ṭughrās resembled a chessboard and went beyond simply displaying the ruler’s name and titles. It also included the names of the Twelve Imams, enhancing the symbol’s authority and prestige and broadening its role as a device conveying self-image. As Bert G. Fragner noted, there is an unmistakable resemblance between these and the ṭughrās of the Mughal rulers in India. In my presentation, I aim to elucidate the gradual formation of these understudied diplomatic components in the Safavid and Mughal decrees and provide a comparison of their content and structure. Furthermore, I wish to determine whether their development merely occurred simultaneously or if one of the respective chanceries drew inspiration from the chessboard design.

    • Nicoletta Fazio (Museum of Islamic Art, Doha) The Movement of the Line: Early Timurid Painting in the Collection of MIA, Doha
    • About 60% of the collection in the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA), Doha is constituted by objects from the Persianate World, mostly Iran and, to a lesser extent, Central Asia. Among the many diverse artworks forming this part of the collection, paintings and bound manuscripts figure prominently, some being true treasures of Persian painting, especially from the Safavid era. Yet, one small but quite interesting corpus of paintings and illustrated manuscripts dates to the late Jalayirid and early Timurid period, a crucial moment for the history of Persian painting. This group of artworks are still rather understudied, and it has been only recently, thanks to the work done for the MIA 2022 Relaunch, that proper research has begun.
    • Because of its heterogeneous nature, from large naturalistic paintings of birds to qalam-siyāhi sketches, to bound illustrated manuscripts and lose folios of epic and romantic poetry, the early Timurid material preserved at MIA allows us to follow the major steps that led to the establishment of what modern scholars have called the Classical Persian Painting. This paper aims to present such artworks and place them in their historical and artistic context to better understand their genesis and stimulate further research and discussion.
    • Yui Kanda (ILCAA) Doha Candlestick: Pilgrimage and Endowment to the Mausoleum of Imām Mūsa al-Kāẓim, Kazimayn (c. 1600)
    • This study introduces a hitherto less-known brass candlestick at the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar (inv. no. MW.152.1999) inscribed with an endowment inscription that indicates that it was donated to the mausoleum of Imam Musa al-Kazim in Kazimayn, Iraq. The candlestick is analysed in depth because its inscriptions – not only the endowment one but also the poetical ones – have the potential to shed some light on the cultural and religious settings in which poetically inscribed brass candlesticks were produced and meant to be used. The study focuses on the surface decorations and the poetical inscriptions on the candlestick and those on some related pieces which were gifted to Shiʿi shrines in Kazimayn, Samarra, and Mashhad. It also examines contemporary primary sources such as biographical anthologies of Persian poetry and dynastic chronicles. Based on these investigations, it is suggested that the Doha candlestick was endowed most likely by a pilgrim from Iran to the mausoleum of Imam Musa al-Kazim in Kazimayn around 1600 or later, the period in which the town was mostly under the control of the Ottomans; it is also argued that the object in question was produced in Iran, circa 1600, most probably in Kashan, the long-established centre of the Twelver Shiʿite population and the city where poets had a close relationship with craftsmen.
    • Philip Bockholt (University of Münster/ILCAA) Cultural Patronage and Intellectual Legacy of Safavid Iran: Shah ʿAbbās’ Book Endowments to Ardabil (c. 1600)
    • The paper investigates the book collections endowed by Shah ʿAbbās (r. 1588–1629) to shrines in Safavid Iran around 1600. Previous analyses, notably by Robert McChesney, have examined narrative accounts and documentary sources like endowment deeds. However, significant gaps persist regarding the specifics of book endowments to key shrines in Ardabil, Mashhad, Qum, and Ray. This study utilises methodologies from Arabic and Islamic studies to scrutinise book inventories, catalogue entries, and manuscript notes. These contain invaluable information regarding manuscripts once contributed to the shrine of Shaykh Ṣafī al-Dīn in Ardabil, now archived in Tehran, Saint Petersburg, and Istanbul. The primary objective is to enrich discussions concerning both the quantity and substantive content of these donated manuscripts. Furthermore, this investigation seeks to elucidate the provenance of these books, probing whether they originated from a royal library, the Shah’s personal collection, or were previously owned by Safavid dignitaries before becoming part of the Ardabil shrine library. Through an examination of the thematic breadth represented in the former royal library via these endowments, this study aims to unveil key aspects of Safavid material culture and the prevailing intellectual milieu within the Safavid court circa 1600. Additionally, the inquiry extends to examining book endowments directed to shrine libraries as a potential tool employed to legitimise Safavid authority within Iran.<
    • Tomoko Masuya (Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia, The University of Tokyo) An Overview of Illustrated Persian Manuscripts Moved Between Cities in the Fourteenth to Sixteenth Centuries In my recent study of a particular copy of Jāmiʿ al-tavārīkh preserved at the Raza Library in Rampur, India (F. 1820), I found that this illustrated Ilkhanid manuscript moved first from Tabriz to Shiraz before the early fifteenth century, then to Herat around 1415, and finally to India by the end of the sixteenth century. Other Ilkhanid copies of this title by Rashīd al-Dīn also traveled significant distances; some even found their way to Istanbul from Tabriz via Herat.
    • Why were these illustrated Persian manuscripts moved? The reason was that manuscripts containing quality paintings were considered to be treasures by pre-modern Persianate rulers. Royal bibliophiles wishing to improve their library holdings would obtain illustrated manuscripts in the form of booty, confiscations, gifts, or purchases, and thus the manuscripts often changed hands. Sometimes they accompanied their owners to a new post in a new city.
    • I will give an overview of how illustrated Persian manuscripts moved from city to city during the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries and suggest the circumstances and the people responsible for these movements. This will shed light on how highly valued and universally revered these manuscripts were in the pre-modern Persianate world.

    • “The Caliphate Will Last for Thirty Years”: Medieval Islamic Political Discourses on a Prophetic Hadith
    • Han Hsien Liew The hadith, “The caliphate will last for thirty years, followed by kingship,” forms the crux of Muslim debates over the distinction between a legitimate caliphate and worldly kingship. While scholars such as Muhammad Qasim Zaman and I-Wen Su have examined the hadith’s provenance and transmission during the first two centuries of Islam, this paper is more concerned with mapping the political discourses and debates that emerged from it after the crystallization of Sunnism in the ninth and tenth centuries. For instance, some Sunni scholars used it for polemical purposes in defending the collective reign of the four Rightly Guided Caliphs against Shiʿi claims that ʿAlī b. Abī Ṭālib was the rightful immediate successor to Muhammad. Other scholars, such as al-Nasafī (d. 1142), al-Āmidī (d. 1233), and al-Taftāzānī (d. 1390), grappled with the hadith’s literal meaning but refused to draw a clear demarcating line between the Rightly Guided Caliphs and the Umayyad and Abbasid caliphs who came after them, insisting that a legitimate caliphate still existed after the Rightly Guided Caliphs. Drawing on chronicles, theological writings, and hadith commentaries, this paper argues that these political and historical discussions often revolved around three political ideals: consensus, justice, and piety. They also show that Sunni thinkers continued to hold diverse opinions about the nature of the caliphate during a time when the caliphal office was losing its political significance in the Islamic world.
    • Historicizing the Caliphate: Ibn Khaldūn’s Interpretation and Description of the age of al-Khulafāʼ al-Rāshidūn
    • Yuta Arai With the decline of the Abbasid caliphate, the major focus of concern in Sunni Islamic political thought shifted from the caliphate itself to the enforcement of sharīʻa. The theory of al-siyāsa al-sharʻīya, proposed by some Sunni jurists like Ibn Taymīya after the fall of the Abbasid dynasty, positioned rulers and ulamāʼ as bearers of sharīʻa, rather than caliphs.
    • However, a 14th-century Arab historian, Ibn Khaldūn, famous as the author of al-Muqaddima, faced the necessity to reinterpret the caliphate from his standpoint as a historian, rather than a jurist. Ibn Khaldūn propounded the necessity of mulk, or (coercive) sovereignty, in human society and described universal history from the pre-Islamic age to the 14th century as the transfer process of sovereignty among nations in Kitāb al-ʻibar. Therefore, Ibn Khaldūn had to place the age of al-khulafāʼ al-rāshidūn, which had been idealized by his predecessors based on the Sunni historical perspective, in his universal history, while adapting his theory of sovereignty. Ibn Khaldūn reinterpreted the character of the caliphate based on the conception of ʻaṣabīya, or solidarity, which he himself defined as the origin of sovereignty, and viewed the age of al-khulafāʼ al-rāshidūn as a transitory phase from tribal leadership to sovereignty in the history of the Arabs.

    • 15:35–16:20. Lecture by Nicoletta Fazio (Museum of Islamic Art, Doha) “A Tale of Two Cities: Displaying the Qur’ān between Berlin and Doha”
    • 16:20–17:00. Q&A and Discussion
    • Abstract:
    • This is a tale of two countries, two cities, two museums, two collections, and one curator: this is my story and how I have navigated so far the many challenges around and behind the displaying the Qur’ān in public cultural institutions that function as secular entities and yet bear the much misleading label of “Museum of Islamic Art”. This lecture has its roots in the discussions and preparatory work for the exhibition Worte lesen – Worte fühlen, held at the Museum für Islamische Kunst in 2016, and the refurbishment of the permanent galleries at the Museum of Islamic Art, which includes a gallery fully dedicated to the Qur’ān and reopened to the public in 2022.
    • The question of sacredness and its presentation in modern-day museums has run through the field of museology for a good two decades and has become more and more cogent as museums have started redefining their missions and place within society. However, it has only been in very recent years that museums presenting artefacts produced by Islamic cultures have joined such discussion. While studies have analysed and dissected exhibition strategies, institutional politics, curatorial practices, and architectural planning as public space through a transnational perspective, less attention has been given to the actual objects involved in major museum displays and, in particular, to a category of artefacts that, by their very nature, are invested with deep holiness: Qur’ān manuscripts.
    • Repositories of both historical information and vectors for affective memories, Qur’āns can be tricky objects to showcase. Displays rarely give justice to its ontological complexity and historical significance, which are indeed key elements to publicly present considering today’s ramping climate of cultural misconceptions and social prejudices. In my own curatorial practice, I have tried to step away from a beautification of the object, a flattening process inherent to the becoming part of an art collection. Instead, I have often focused on the materiality of each exhibit in conversation with the rest of the display. The presentation illustrates some of the issues encountered and the solutions proposed while working within two different contexts and spaces, to meet expectations of very diverse audiences, each with their agency. This would, I hope, open the floor space to an engaging discussion to a more than ever urgent theme.

    • Abstracts
    • “I Put My Fear for You above My Fear of You”: Piety and Emotions in Ibn al-Jawzī’s Political Thought
    • Han Hsien Liew Studies on medieval Islamic political thought have often focused on the writings of jurists and theologians, hence prioritizing dialectical reasoning as the main mode of political thinking. In this paper, I explore new avenues in the history of Islamic political thought by examining the role of preachers and emotions in effecting political reform. I take as my case study the political writings of the twelfth-century hortatory preacher (wāʿiẓ) Ibn al-Jawzī (d. 1201) that aim at the moral reform of rulers. Compared with the scholastic and disputative discourses of Muslim jurists and theologians, Ibn al-Jawzī deems the hortatory preacher’s homiletic tools to be more effective in appealing to the ruler’s moral and emotional sensitivities. Such tools include the mixing of admonition with praise, the use of biographies of past rulers as models of ideal rulership, and an emphasis on eschatological themes to induce the pious fear of God. Moreover, the chapter arrangement of Ibn al-Jawzī’s mirror for princes dedicated to the reigning Abbasid caliph exhibits at a similar “emotional movement” as his hortatory sermons delivered to the laypeople of medieval Baghdad. Ibn al-Jawzī’s approach to reforming rulers ultimately sheds light on the relationship between politics, rhetoric, and emotions in late Abbasid Baghdad.
    • Quoting Ibn al-Jawzī for Justification of Imamophilia: Cases of Sibṭ Ibn al-Jawzī and ʿAlī b. ʿĪsā al-Irbilī
    • Ryo Mizukami Ibn al-Jawzī (d. 1201), the leading Baghdadi Sunni scholar, has been mentioned as a prominent supporter of the Shiʿi Imams in the spread of interconfessional reverence for the Twelve Shiʿi Imams (imamophilia). Although he never praised the Twelve Imams in his works as one special group of honorable figures, later Shiʿis and imamophilic Sunnis utilized his words to justify imamophilia.
    • By focusing on both Sunni and Shiʿi faḍāʾil (virtues) works on the Twelve Imams, this study clarifies how Ibn al-Jawzī’s image, as an authority of imamophilia, was established. After discussing his general attitudes toward the Shiʿi Imams in his works, I examine the methodology of quotations by two faḍāʾil authors who valued Ibn al-Jawzī: Sibṭ Ibn al-Jawzī (d. 1256), the famous Sunni historian and Ibn al-Jawzī’s grandson, and ʿAlī b. ʿĪsā al-Irbilī (d. 1293 or 94), the Shiʿi scholar of Ilkhanid Baghdad.

    • Symposium “Futures of Academic Research and Art”
    • The realm of academic inquiry not limited by the confines of traditional academic texts as pioneered by visual anthropology/multimodal anthropology, art-based research, and similar approaches, has played a pivotal role in broadening scholarly horizons and rethinking the nature of knowledge. In recent years, these methods have expanded beyond visual media, encompassing works utilizing contemporary art techniques, interactive website creation, VR exhibitions, and various other approaches, thus opening up novel dimensions of thought. Nevertheless, challenges persist in these emerging fields, such as insufficient platforms for exchanging methodologies and ideas, as well as limited space for critique within academia.
    • Against this backdrop, this symposium aims to facilitate discussions on the experiences of those who have spearheaded collaboration between academia and the arts within the academic sphere. Through such exchanges, we aim to explore both the challenges and possibilities for the future, envisioning the development of advanced organizations and platforms that embody a new holistic form of knowledge.

    • 14:00. Introduction by Nobuaki Kondo (ILCAA)
    • 14:10. Peter Good (JSPS Fellow/ILCAA) “Stability by Contract?: The East India Company in Persia 1600-1747”
    • The English East India Company’s presence in Persia represents one of the longest non-colonial or imperial relationships of a European state with an Indian Ocean Empire. The Company’s ability to maintain its position as both a trading and diplomatic presence in the Safavid Empire was due to mutually recognised benefits. These included joint military campaigns against the Portuguese (1622), Gulf Piracy, or Arab and Afghan rebels along the littoral of the Persian Gulf. This paper will explore the different and changing methods used and deployed by both parties in order to maintain this valuable cooperation. The Company and the Safavid State enshrined their relationship in an evolving written document, the Farman. However, the Farman alone was rarely sufficient to fully answer all eventualities faced by either party, renegotiations were therefore required to better reflect changing circumstances. This paper will explore how the Anglo-Persian relationship was maintained outside of the formal confines of the written Farman. By exploring these bilateral exchanges, it is possible to better understand how the Company’s business was interwoven with the local and state policies of the Safavid Empire and its successors. Understanding the balance of power and management of the Anglo-Persian relations has an important impact upon the way we understand the agency of non-European states and peoples in their commercial and diplomatic exchanges. This helps us to understand the multi-valent nature of these interactions, rather than relying solely on Eurocentric views.
    • 15:10. Norifumi Daito (Historiographical Institute, the University of Tokyo) “Pursue of Agreement: The Dutch East India Company”
    • After the brutal overthrow of the Safavid dynasty in 1722, the Dutch East India Company (VOC) faced a serious setback in Iran. In face of incessant war their once-thriving trade in Bandar Abbas fell substantially. After desperate efforts in the rising markets of Basra, Bushire and Kharg Island, the VOC finally withdrew from the Persian Gulf in 1766. Historians think the Dutch failures signified Iran’s imperial and economic crisis, but the underlined overall catastrophe raises the question: how could the VOC nevertheless last so long?
    • This paper argues that the crucial driving force behind the “longevity” of the VOC was a maintained vitality of local intermediaries, particularly Hindu and Armenian merchants. While endorsing the ailing Company trade as brokers or interpreters, they also served as important fixers between the VOC and rising regional powers. Here I elaborate on that understanding through an investigation of trade agreements the Company made with ruling elites in the Gulf and neighboring countries after the Safavids. By culling evidence from changing socioeconomic conditions that formed them, the paper shows a remarkable mobility of the local intermediaries that helped the VOC to struggle with the political vicissitudes in the post-Safavid period.

    • Sun 19 Nov
    • ■Workshop “Doing fieldwork on everyday life 2”
    • Sun 10 Dec
    • [Overview]
    • Anthropology has long considered the fieldwork, thinking through experiences in different cultures and places as essential. In this workshop, while rooted in such fieldwork methodologies, participants will conduct fieldwork on their own everyday lives through exercises. The aim is to gain new perspectives on everyday life and the world. On the first session, November 19th, after an introduction to anthropology and fieldwork, we will engage in several exercises to estrange familiar sensations and bodies in everyday life. Between the first and second session, participants will work on creating works on specific themes as extracurricular exercises. On the second session, December 10th, we will present and discuss our respective works and insights. Participants who have not previously experienced anthropology, fieldwork, or art are welcome to join.
    • ※This event is an experimental project aimed at the creation of new field science methods. The content of the event will be utilized in the research of the organizers, and individual works are planned to be publicly showcased as collective art on a website
    • Eligibility: Those interested in fieldwork, anthropology, and art (undergraduate students and above). Participants must be able to attend in-person on both days.

    Rethinking Frantz Fanon and Anti-Colonialism in the Contemporary Middle East
    [open]
    • Abstract:
    • Frantz Fanon is often considered the ‘father’ of the theory of anti-colonial violence. However, such a reductionist view ignores the Antillean thinker’s complex analysis of colonialism and anti-colonial revolution in Africa and the Middle East. This seminar will highlight some of Fanon’s ideas on the nature of anti-colonialism with reference to the role of the peasantry in this struggle and urban politics. It will also draw out the implications of these ideas in light of current examples in the contemporary Middle East.

    • Title: Doing research in transboundary conflict contexts: Reflections from the field in Uganda
    • Presenter: Dr. Constance Mudondo (Makerere University)
    • Although research in conflict-context has been presented to be critical in peace making process, the field experiences of researchers are seldom highlighted. This article illustrates experiences of doing research in transboundary conflict contexts. Using the conflict in Namatala transboundary wetland in Eastern Uganda, the article draws on the reflections from the field and highlights the researchers’ practical experiences of doing research in transboundary conflict contexts. The study which adopted a mixed approach employed a number of methods to collect data, that is household surveys, focus group discussions and key informant interviews. This article illustrates that researchers in transboundary conflict contexts have numerous experiences that include; how their identity shapes penetration to the field, navigating power relations among and between participants, ensuring safety of participants during data collection, how political and social events shape the research process, dealing with their emotions and how to navigate community gender dynamics during data collection. The article demonstrates that the conflict fields shape how participants perceive the researchers, how data is generated and how the researchers navigate research fields. This article demonstrates that researchers in conflict contexts ought to be very flexible and take note of the undertones of the changing conflict context.

    International Symposium 'Global Youth Dynamics and 'Reality' Negotiation in East Africa and South Asia: Gender, Diversity, Agency'
    [open]
    • 【Theme】This symposium focuses on youth ethnographically and seeks to examine, with an intersectional lens, how young people, in Eastern Africa and South Asia, understand their social world through their multiple identities -gender, caste, region, language, and nation - as well as their individual aspirations, desires, and choices. It also seeks to compare the structural factors that act as barriers to their mobility as well as identify the strategies and pathways that individuals develop for change. Through such an approach that focuses on both structure and agency, we aim to arrive at a broader understanding of the issues at hand in vastly different terrains and social communities.
    • The symposium seeks to address some pertinent questions: How do patriarchy, kinship, lack of (higher) education, unemployment, insecurity, and social and cultural inequalities common to these regions confront young people? How do they cope with the complexities and challenges they may encounter in their diverse social and cultural contexts? What forces compel them to make difficult choices for change? What new forms does their agency take?
    • We are especially interested in contributions that focus on gender, religion, and diversity with particular attention to agency. The diverse geographical sites and socio-political contexts will enrich our understanding of the themes through multiple social and regional perspectives. We hope this symposium will further enable us to arrive at a nuanced understanding of youth in diverse settings and provide a comparative background to anthropological youth studies.

    Video Editing Workshop for Extending Anthropological Thinking
    [open]
    • With the recent proliferation of smartphones and digital cameras, many anthropologists take images of casual daily life and minor events in the fieldwork. However, most of these images are probably not of dramatic events, but rather fragments that have no meaning beyond that of a record and thus are simply stored as dead data. On the other hand, images such as Robert Gardner's Forest of Bliss, for example, which capture only mundane things but appeal to the viewer in more ways than mere documentary footage, tend to be thought of as requiring advanced production techniques. On the other hands, even if the significance of conveying the sensory experience of the field is recognized, it seems that video has been given only a supplementary position to the written word.
    • Against this backdrop, the goal of this workshop is for anthropologists unfamiliar with video editing to create ethnographic images from video materials that do not show anything special, and to discover in this process the seeds of an argument that can be connected to the anthropology that has been conducted through the written word. Unlike many documentary films, the videos are not edited in chronological order or in the order of events, but rather are categorized and connected according to the sensations, impressions, and themes they bring to the viewer, thereby provoking thought that can be connected to written expression. The workshop will be led by Shu Fujita(TUFS Field Science Commons) and Hiroto Tsuda, a guest lecturer (Akita University of Art), who has been examining and practicing anthropological thinking at the intersection of art and the visual arts.

    • 15:00. Emi GOTO (ILCAA, TUFS) Introduction
    • 15:10. Mustafa Abdalla (The Free University, Berlin) “Disease as a Form of Silent Resistance: Engaging in Disease Markets to Attain Healthcare Services”
    • 16:10. Discussion
    • Moderator: Junko TORIYAMA (Ritsumeikan University)
    • Abstract:
    • Egypt's healthcare system is grounded in the principle of universal access to healthcare services, promising equitable treatment for all citizens. However, the ground realities often reveal a stark contrast. Drawing inspiration from the perspectives of James C. Scott on everyday forms of resistance, this paper explores a unique phenomenon that has emerged within the Egyptian context, where disease has paradoxically become a tool of silent resistance employed by a particular group of individuals, which I call “Professional Patients.” By presenting a detailed examination of this strategy, this paper uncovers the strategies employed by these individuals to navigate the barriers of the healthcare system, including adopting a disease identity, and offering disease services in a growing disease market in order to gain access to medical services.
    • Speaker:
    • Mustafa Abdalla is a medical anthropologist who holds a master’s degree in anthropology from the American University in Cairo and a doctoral degree in anthropology from the Free University in Berlin. He conducted research both in Egypt and Mali focusing on health issues, gender, sexuality, health, disease, medical education, mobility and religion. Mustafa Abdalla is affiliated to the Medical Anthropology Unit of the Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology, The Free University, Berlin and he currently works on his research project “Productive Pathologies: Professional Patients and the Commodification of Disease in Egypt”.

    International Workshop: Food as a window to the past: Africa, Asia and the Pacific
    [open]
    • Food is much more than a way for human beings to physically survive: it is an integral part of every culture in the world. Because it requires elements of the natural world (plants, animals...), as well as human-made tools, and because it involves rituals as well as techniques (from hunting, gathering, growing plants and tending domestic animals, to preparing and preserving food), it is at the crossroads between material and immaterial heritage. In this workshop, we propose to explore the way food, as the topic of transdisciplinary research, can help us learn more about past societies, their places of origin, their contacts, their networks and their migrations, as well as their evolution, and current development. The initiators of the workshop are linguists Amina Mettouchi (EPHE/LLACAN, Paris) and Nicholas Evans (ANU, Canberra). Each of them has been exploring the deep history of food as traced through language – Mettouchi in North Africa, on documentation of food preparation (discourse, techniques, utensils and rituals), and lexical variation and reconstruction (in relation to archeological and DNA evidence), especially of cereal-based foods (bazin, couscous), and milk products, and Evans through work documenting the language of food preparation in northern Australia and New Guinea.

    • Just another Travelogue on Qājār Persia? Exploring the Travel Diaries of the German Botanist Carl Haussknecht (1838–1903) and his observations on society under Nāṣir al-Dīn Shāh
    • Nāṣir al-Dīn Shāh’s (1831-1896) era saw an enormous increase in foreigners coming to Persia as diplomats, missionaries, and European company representatives. Among these travelers was the German botanist Carl Haussknecht (1838–1903), whose aim was to collect plants and information on the local botany. Haussknecht undertook two botanical expeditions to the so-called Orient: the first in 1865 to the Ottoman Empire, the second in 1866-1869 to the Ottoman Empire and Persia. He recorded his observations in 15 booklets, totaling about 1000 pages, during both journeys. His diaries were never published, thus his travels are mostly unknown beyond the field of botany. The travel diaries of Haussknecht provide insights into the society, politics, and economy of Persia during the 19th century. However, since the diaries were never edited during his own lifetime, they reveal not only the genesis of a travelogue but they also provide a meta level access to Qājār society. This especially is visible in Haussknecht’s treatment of reading material, details which would probably have been deleted during an editing process.
    • This paper presents Haussknecht’s travel diaries as a source for studying Qājār Persia. Additionally, it shows how their meta level can provide a new way of studying the sociocultural landscape of the Nāṣirī period.

    • ■ Title and Abstract
    • Biblical Narrative Poems in Judeo-Persian in Fourteenth-Century Iran
    • Shāhīn (fl. in the first part of the 14th century) holds the distinction of being the first known poet to versify portions of the Hebrew Bible in the Judeo-Persian language in the form of long narrative poems (mathnavī). He is credited with four works, the most extensive of which is the Bereshit-nāma (Book of Genesis), composed in 1358/59. Shāhīn was active during the late Ilkhanid and early post-Mongol periods, a time when new forms of patronage over literary and artistic production emerged seeking to blend different cultural worlds. The poet indeed crafted unique amalgams of Jewish and Perso-Islamic traditions, both in form and content.
    • In this talk, I will delve into several episodes from the Bereshit-nāma to explore Shāhīn’s retelling of biblical narratives from a comparative angle, considering both Jewish and Muslim exegetical sources. My aim is to reveal the pool of traditions that Shāhīn might have drawn upon for his version and to elucidate the working techniques and interpretative strategies he employed. Through this analysis, I hope to demonstrate that despite writing in Judeo-Persian, the poet was firmly entrenched in a Persianate cultural domain.

    DDDLing Forum: Bound pronouns and constituent order in the Minahasan languages: the significance for western Austronesian typology
    [open]
    • A talk by Dr. Timothy Brickell, who is currently staying at the Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia Africa as a JSPS Postdoctoral fellow.
    • Abstract:
    • Western Austronesian languages exhibiting symmetrical-voice alternations are frequently categorised as either ‘Philippine-type’ or ‘Indonesian-type’. Both geographic and a range of morphosyntactic criteria are used to distinguish these two subcategories. Despite this, it has been noted that this binary distinction is at times insufficient for describing the variation among these languages. The study provides further evidence of this typological problem, by examining several aspects of morphosyntax in four languages of the Minahasan micro-group of North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
    • In terms of bound pronominal systems and clausal constituent order, these languages exhibit, to varying degrees, features which are atypical to either subcategory. Additionally, previously described transition processes which might explain the development of these features are shown not to be applicable. Instead, the various language-internal innovations are best described as a result of multiple well attested, and sometimes conflicting, cross-linguistic preferences which occur at various levels of structure. This further illustrates the relevance of these natural-language tendencies more broadly, regardless of other structural considerations such as morphosyntactic alignment or the arrangement of grammatical relations.

    • Abstract:
    • Tārīkh-i Banākatī Reconsidered: Beyond Rashīd al-Dīn-centrism Osamu OTSUKA (The University of Tokyo) Abū Sulaymān Dāwūd b. Abī al-Faḍl Muḥammad b. Muḥammad b. Dāwūd al-Banākatī’s Tārīkh-i Banākatī is a Persian universal history compiled in the Ilkhanid period that was dedicated to the ninth Ilkhanid ruler, Abū Sa‘īd (r. 1316–35) on 31 December 1317. This work has commonly been considered to be an abridgement of Rashīd al-Dīn’s (d. 1318) Jāmi‘ al-Tawārīkh since the middle of the nineteenth century. This kind of negative evaluation is found deeply rooted in most previous studies. While the work Jāmi‘ al-Tawārīkh is highly admired and widely studied, other Persian universal histories written in the Ilkhanid period including the Tārīkh-i Banākatī, have not attracted commensurate attention. It is worth noting that later intellectuals in pre-modern Persianate societies never evaluated the Tārīkh-i Banākatīas a mere abridgement of the Jāmi‘ al-Tawārīkh, which has no value. This paper is the first philological study of the Tārīkh-i Banākatī. By investigating its remaining manuscripts and comparing the text with that of other Persian universal histories, I reconsider its historical value in Persian historiographical studies (especially in the Ilkhanid period). Read by Whom? On the Question of Readership of the Ḥabīb al-Siyar in the Eastern Islamic World Philip BOCKHOLT (WWU, Münster) The Persian world history Ḥabīb al-Siyar is one of the most copied historiographical works in Islamic intellectual history. Written by the Iranian historian Khvāndamīr (d. 1535/36) in Herat during the rule of the Shiʿi Safavids in the 1520s, the book was subsequently adapted to the religious and political expectations of his later patrons, the Sunni Mughals in India, and circulated through hundreds of copies spread across the entire eastern Islamic world. In my paper, I will analyse manuscript copies of the work and offer new insights into their readership at various locations in the premodern Islamic world. Taking cues from reception, provenance, and historical readership studies, I will examine ownership and readership notes, endowment seals and illustrations in order to shed light on the owners and readers of the work between the 16th and early 20th centuries. By giving an in-depth analysis of marginal notes found in the extant copies, I will situate the Ḥabīb al-Siyar within the broader framework of Islamic book culture and show that the chronicle was part of a larger canon of texts. This canon was read within a greater Persianate world including not only the Safavid court in Iran and the Mughal court in India, but also places on the Deccan as well as in Central Asia and the Ottoman Empire. My paper thus offers comprehensive insights into the transregional transmission of Persian historiography as well as regionally specific readership practices.

    Islamic Trust Studies Workshop “Trade Diasporas across the Early Modern Mediterranean”
    [open]
    • The Workshop “Trade Diasporas across the Early Modern Mediterranean” will be organized by B01“The Ideas of the Muslim Community and State Systems(Principal Investigator: KONDO Nobuaki).”
    • Tommaso Stefini (European University Institute) “Hosting the stranger: trade diasporas across the early modern Mediterranean (15th-18th centuries)”
    • Abstract
    • During the early modern period, expanding diplomatic activities and trade connections across the Mediterranean promoted the creation of diasporas of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim merchants in the main commercial centers of the Ottoman Empire and Mediterranean Europe. In order to benefit from economic opportunities and to cope with the challenges arising from human migration and religious diversity, the rulers of Christian and Muslim states had to devise institutional arrangements to regulate the presence of foreign communities within their borders. These arrangements usually included hosting these groups in distinct neighborhoods or secluded buildings, allowing them a degree of self-administration in intra-group taxation and justice administration, and offering them fiscal exemptions and legal privileges in state courts. By focusing on the Ottoman trade hubs of Istanbul, Izmir, and Aleppo and on the European ports of Venice, Livorno, and Marseille, this presentation will argue that, despite differences in the political and legal systems, the Ottoman, Italian, and French governments devised comparable solutions to regulate the residence and business activities of foreign merchants. These solutions included the issuance of charters of privileges and duties and similar regulations on matters of residence, justice administration, and economic rights which aimed to both include foreign merchants in the states’ legal and economic systems and limit their contacts with the host population. These similar arrangements, it will be argued, stemmed from the shared institution of the safe- conduct (Latin, salvus conductus, Arabic/Turkish aman), which had regulated inter-state relations and the protection of religious minorities and foreign merchants in the Middle East and Mediterranean Europe since the period Crusades in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. Despite these shared solutions, however, there also existed a degree of difference among all the contexts under study-for instance, in the freedom of movement and business activity granted to merchants as well as in acceptance of any religious groups- which relate to the political economy of long-distance trade of different states.

    Exhibition “Thinking about the co-creation of academic knowledge through the Civil Dialog Caravan of Islamic Trust Studies”
    [open]
    • The “Islamic Trust Studies” Project calls a series of outreach activities that return its academic outcomes to society by “Civil Dialog Caravan.” This exhibition will give opportunities to reflect on the two years of its Civil Dialog activities and deliberate about the sustainable co-creation of academic knowledge for a new epoch.
    • Details:
    • Based on the concept of “connectivity (capability of forming a connection)” fostered through the medium of Islam, the “Islamic Trust Studies” Project has performed inclusive and dialog-form outreach activities since 2021, collaborating with ILCAA and Setagaya Daita Jinji Nursery School. Our “Civil Dialog” aims to return the fruits of research in an interactive way, which is suitable for “Transformative Research Areas.” Today, the humanities and social sciences are eagerly desired to get the society to recognize their value and meaning by sharing their attractiveness with people and putting these academic areas in a broader context. The exhibition looks back over the two-year outcomes and tasks of the “Civil Dialog” through the reconstruction of two Civil Dialog events “The World Connected by Animals (2021)” and “The World Connected by the Sky and the Sea (2022)” with panel display. Why don't you explore with us what the sustainable co-creation of academic knowledge should be for a new epoch?

    • Michael TALBOT (University of Greenwich) “From Abode of Holy War to the Waters of the Sublime State: Layers of law and maritoriality in the Ottoman Mediterranean”
    • Abstract:
    • The Mediterranean Sea was a place of violent confrontation and interconnected commerce in the 17th and 18th centuries, but was also the setting for struggles and compromises over sovereignty. The Ottoman Empire and its autonomous Regencies in North Africa controlled a significant part of the Mediterranean coast, and it is through exploring their understandings of their authority over those coasts and the seas beyond that we can better understand shifting attitudes and practices around sovereignty, diplomacy, and commerce across the later 17th and 18th centuries. Looking at the Ottoman Empire and the Regency of Algiers, this paper will discuss how ‘maritoriality’ in the Ottoman world developed as a legal response to new military and commercial challenges that required a series of temporary and permanent innovations to regulate coastal and maritime spaces and commerce.

    Lecture by Dr. Philip Bockholt, “The Many Persian and Turkish Versions of the Ḥabīb al-Siyar”
    [open]
    • Program:
    • 15:30-15:40. Introduction
    • 15:40–16:20. Dr. Philip Bockholt (WWU, Münster) “The Many Persian and Turkish Versions of the Ḥabīb al-Siyar”
    • 16:20-17:00. Discussion
    • Abstract:
    • Khvāndamīr’s general history Ḥabīb al-Siyar of 1524 was by far the most important historiographical work of the early Safavid and Mughal periods. Taking into account the political events that took place in Iran, Central Asia and India around 1500, I will first examine the manuscript tradition of the work and analyse in detail how the author adapted his chronicle to the Shiʿi and Sunni religio-political worldview of his Safavid and Mughal overlords. This will provide answers to the questions of how Khvāndamīr combined past events, how he understood “writing history” and what patterns he relied on to construct his work. Secondly, I will trace the Ḥabīb al-Siyar in its “Turkish garb” and shed light on its translation, which was commissioned by the Ottoman grand vizier Dāmād İbrāhīm Pasha in the 1720s, at a time when the Ottomans were at war with their Safavid neighbours. Since Khvāndamīr wrote the work for the Ottomans’ arch-enemies and gave it a Shiʿī orientation, the committee of several translators appointed by the grand vizier faced the challenge of translating explicitly anti-Ottoman and pro-Shiʿī sections within the text. In particular, I will focus on the translators’ approach to historical events that were of utmost importance to the Ottomans, such as Sultan Selīm’s victory over Shah Ismāʿīl at Chāldirān in 1514. The analysis will shed light on the relationships between scholars and patrons, as well as the transmission of texts against the respective religious and political backgrounds of the Eastern Mediterranean in the early modern period.

    Sexuality in Contemporary Africa: Tradition, Education and Practices
    [open]
    • 【TUFiSCo-ILCAA International Symposium】
    • Theme Abstract:
    • Despite the international development organizations’ efforts toward mitigation of learner single motherhood, early pregnancies, and HIV prevalence among societies in Africa, these issues have remained persistently incremental in the last one decade and more recently worsened during COVID-19 pandemic. Menstrual poverty and related WASH problems remain systemic. What explains this trend? Prior to colonial invasion, sexuality was central to every society whereby the family was the educational pivot. The events that followed colonial occupation repositioned the sexuality values toward ‘presumed modernity’. The transitioning from the traditional to the ‘presumed modern’ practices has mutated into dynamic between-ness. In this symposium, we ethnographically interrogate this between-ness and associated complications. We tackle the sensitivities of sexuality in some societies and address the cultural, religious, and political dimensions of sexual education and practices. We identify the existential gaps in the sexual education in the life cycle of a ‘presumed modern African’ society.

    • Nobuyoshi FUJINAMI (Tsuda University)
    • “Redefining the Caliphate, Amending the Constitution? The Penultimate Ottoman Debate on Islamic Leadership”
    • Abstract: Following the Young Turk Revolution in 1908, Ottomans accepted the principle of national sovereignty. Regardless, they felt a little embarrassed regarding exploiting such legally significant issues as the Sultan-Caliph's prerogatives for party interest. The constitutional amendments were a case in point. Both Muslims and non-Muslims freely defined their sovereign’s rights, which inevitably affected those of the universal commander of the faithful. To what extent the “Islamic” discourses regarding this institution were trustworthy remains a question to which I will turn in this talk. Connected as it was to Sharia, Constitution, and international law, the penultimate Ottoman debate on the Caliphate encourages us to investigate what the essentials of Islamic leadership were thought to be and what they are.

    • Overview: The book “The ‘Front Line’ of Animal Ethics: What Is Critical Animal Studies?”, published in May 2022, is renowned as the first Japanese book that comprehensively charts the progression from animal ethics to Critical Animal Studies. In this report, done under the auspices of the Research Project on Islam and Gender, the presenter will provide an overview of this book paying particular attention to the relationship between Critical Animal Studies and feminism and gender outlined in Chapter 5. Then, the presenter would like to share his research findings on the Animal Rights Movement in Israel, focusing primarily upon the topic of “vegan nationalism” which, in Israel, is quite literally a “front line” issue.

    • Erina OTA (TSUKADA) (ILCAA, Tokyo University of Foreign Studies/Project Assistant Professor) “Trust-building through nominal relationship among the 15th century intellectuals: Analysis of their connectivity using RDF graphs” (tentative title)
    • Abstract:
    • There is a lot of prosopographical research into prominent individuals and families as the study of intellectuals (ʻulamāʼ) , who occupied the core of biographical dictionaries written in the Mamluk Sultanate. Previous studies of their connectivity have mainly focused on substantial relationships such as teacher-student and marriage.
    • In this presentation, I will focus on nominal teacher-student relationships built by ʻulamāʼ in the 15th century based on ijāzas (licenses) of “istidʻāʼ” (prayer), which were recorded in biographical dictionaries. This type of ijāza was collectively applied and granted from remote places and had applicants who mediated between grantors and recipients; therefore, it had profoundly different characteristics from ordinary ijāzas, which guaranteed the academic attainment of the applicants.
    • This presentation will aim to analyze the 15th-century ʻulamāʼ's networks formed and expanded from mediators using the RDF graph. After that, I will discuss the social meaning of the large-scale construction of nominal connectivity from the viewpoint of trust.

    <Photo Exhibition>Identities of a Minority: Muslims in America
    [open]
    • The book “Identities of a Minority: Muslims in America” will be published this fall by the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press. It is a collection of documentary photographs by Rick Rocamora, a Philippine-born photographer living in the United States. The book contains photographs and texts depicting some aspects of the daily lives of Muslims living in the U.S. after the 9/11 tragedy in 2001.
    • The exhibition will commemorate the book's release by featuring some photographs from the collection. As Rocamora puts it, these photographs convey the “visual voices” of Muslims living in the U.S. today. Through the visualization of their life stories documented in these photographs, the exhibition aims to deliver the idea that human life is not confined to origin or religion. We hope the exhibition gives visitors a chance to learn about the world today and rethink what it means to live.

    Session No.1 How to Tell “Context”: Methodical Inquiry for Archiving Asia and Africa.
    [open]
    • Today, the construction and utilization of digital archive about language and culture in Asia and Africa proceed and we see the increase of the demands. On the other hand, digital archive enables us to construct and transmit information resources and has larger social influence.
    • In this situation, it is necessary to discuss digital archive itself because of its political characteristics.
    • The first subject to be discussed is image fixation by digital archives.
    • As the second subject, we estimate the risks of digital archiving that can be a disadvantage against the areas which are subjects of archiving.
    • We will focus on “context” as the community and historical and cultural background of the subject of archiving. We will discuss the ways of the construction of digital archives, from the viewpoint of how to deal with and communicate the “context.”

    • Program:
    • Speaker: Guy Burak (New York University) Title: ‘The Rediscovery of a Phantom Library: Studying the Library of Ahmad Pasha al-Jazzar (d. 1804)'
    • Moderator: Takao ITO (Kobe University / C01)
    • Abstract: The library of the mosque of the famous late eighteenth-century governor of northern Palestine Ahmad Pasha al-Jazzar (d. 1804) has had a phantom presence in the historiography of Ottoman and Levantine libraries. Recently, the inventory of the library, currently held at the General Directorate of Endowments in Ankara, was brought to my attention. This personal discovery led to a large collaborative research project whose aim is to study one of the most important Ottoman libraries of the late eighteenth century. The talk will survey the project and situate it in the broader context of the study of Ottoman and Islamic libraries. Special attention will be drawn to the particularities of the librarian(s)’ descriptive practices.

    Recreation and the creative Muslimah
    [open]
    • Title: Recreation and the creative Muslimah
    • Abstract: In most countries around the world literacy and employment rate amongst women has risen steadily in the last few decades, as it has amongst Muslim women too. Many amongst them are seeking simultaneously to learn about Islam, i.e., their obligations as Muslims and the rights that Islamic law has endowed them. Their engagement in economic activities implies mobility and the availability of surplus capital to spend on recreational activities. However, the question arises if and which recreational activities will be permissible and preferred by Muslim women. Therefore, many women have introduced tourism, hospitality, and event management initiatives that cater to educated urban Muslims' aesthetics. The travel bloggers from Indonesia who review female mosque areas, Instagrammers from the UK who normalize a niqabi lifestyle while capturing beautiful picnics, and Pakistani women who promote traveling into beautiful areas of Pakistan in female and family-friendly ways are a few prominent examples.
    • Speaker: Faiza Muhammad Din (Post-doctoral researcher, Institute for Asian and African Studies, Humboldt University Berlin) Faiza is currently engaged as a post-doctoral researcher in the research project, Women's Pathways to Professionalization in Muslim Asia: Reconfiguring Religious Knowledge, Gender, and Connectivity (2020-3). The research focuses on the diverse ways in which Muslim women translate their religious knowledge into their professional lives. This presentation is based on the online research conducted in 2020-1 during the pandemic. Her research interests include gender and religion, language and gender, eco-theology, interreligious dialogue, religion and consumer identities, and South & Southeast Asian Islam.

    • Abstract:
    • Based on my on-going project entitled 'Ottoman Endowments Built by Women: The Fountains of Istanbul’, this paper presents some early findings. The project’s principal goal is the collection of data on those fountains of Ottoman Istanbul that were built under the patronage of women – the intent being to construct the identity of the women who sponsored the construction of those fountains, and to address the questions that arise therein.
    • Some of these questions include:
    • • Was fountain-building patronage as popular among women as it was with men?
    • • Do those fountains that were commissioned by women differ significantly from those commissioned by men?
    • • Given the poems that were written in celebration of a given fountain’s construction, is it possible to determine the identity of the woman who commissioned it?

    • Title: Workshop
    • Who Are “Good Quality Soldiers” ? : The Intersectionality of Gender and Ethnicity in the Israeli Military
    • Speaker: Yuki SAWAGUCHI (Ph.D student, The University of Tokyo) Abstract: Since the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, it has had mandatory military service for both sexes. The citizens and the soldiers are equated by militarism which creates a nation through military services. In this context, “good quality soldiers” in prestigious units in the Israeli military are represented as the ideal of Israeli citizens and can obtain a valuable career in civilian life. On the other hand, the “quality of the soldier” is not value-neutral, and “good soldiers” are constructed/reproduced by the diverse stratification of Israeli society. Through the intersectionality of gender and ethnicity, this workshop discusses how “good quality soldiers” are produced by Israel's power structure and hierarchy.

    • ZHANG, Shuya (JSPS Postdoctoral fellow) Title: Lost nephew: how the vicissitudes of Gyalrongic nibling terminology shed light on the Proto- Gyalrongic family structure?
    • Abstract:
    • Kinship terms inherited from the proto-language may develop different meanings in different daughter languages. A classic example concerns Proto-Indo-European (PIE) *népōts, which developed two seemingly unrelated meanings in Indo-European (IE) languages, ‘nephew (in particular sister’s child)’ and ‘grandchild’. Reconstructing ‘grandchild, descendant' as the original meaning of PIE *népōts left much room and clues for the speculation of the social institutions leading to the semantic change from ‘grandchild’ to ‘nephew’ in IE languages. In Sino-Tibetan, Gyalrongic languages, a conservative branch spoken in Northwestern Sichuan, present a similar yet more intriguing case related to their nibling terms, with a mixture of cross-dialectal divergence and intra-dialectal polysemy. The Gyalrongic etymon #ptsa exhibits a semantic split between ‘nibling’, attested in the west sub-branch, and ‘cousins’, found in the east branch. Moreover, in a few varieties, the reflexes of Gyalrongic #ptsa involve a cross-generational equation, and are used for both sister’s children and father’s sister’s children. Such equation is noteworthy, as it is reminiscent of the Omaha skewing (named after the Omaha Indians in today’s Nebraska) (Jacques 2012). However, unlike IE languages, the majority of Gyalrongic languages lack written records, linguistics is thus one of the only methods that allow us to trace the historical development of Gyalrongic kinship systems and to speculate on family structures of the Gyalrongs. In attempting to explain the puzzle of the Gyalrongic etymon #ptsa, this talk presents the nibling terms and other relevant information in Gyalrongic languages. It proposes a reconstruction of the Proto-Gyalrongic nibling terminology, and hypothesizes scenarios of historical development to account for the modern diversity of nibling terminologies. On this basis, it will show how the reconstructed nibling terminology can shed light on the family structure of Proto-Gyalrongic speakers. This study will also have indirect repercussions on the historical status of Omaha skewing in Sino-Tibetan (see for example Benedict 1942).

    • 14:30-15:30. Yukinori KIMOTO (ILCAA Joint Researcher, University of Hyogo) “Social cognition and syntactic embedding: Corpus-based typology of complementation and their alternatives”
    • Semantic “embedding” is observed in all languages, but the way it is done differs from language to language. The preceding project attempted to quantitatively clarify these differences using the above corpus SCOPIC. Most previous descriptive studies have assumed that complementation is an unmarked structure that represents a semantic embedding, and the focus of interest has been whether a particular language A has a complement clause and, if so, in what constructions it can be used. However, when we focused on the preference of each language based on data from the SCOPIC corpus, we found that even in languages where complementation has been considered acceptable in grammaticality/acceptance-based descriptive studies, it is not actually high in frequency. In this presentation, we will also show examples of non-complementation methods in each language.

    [open]
    • Title: Covid-19 in Egypt: Public Health and Government Responses
    • Speaker: Mohammed Moussa (Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University) Abstract:
    • Public health became a commonly espoused agenda during the Covid-19 pandemic among global, regional, and national actors in the Middle East. Capacity development, good governance, and public health discourses do highlight the glaring inequalities of healthcare provision within and across Arab states in a global capitalist system. In Egypt, government responses were centred on an urgently and hastily adopted public health agenda. The government coordinated its infectious disease control policy with intergovernmental organizations such as the WHO and UNICEF. From infectious disease guidelines to vaccines, the existence of the Egyptian state’s anti-coronavirus national strategy is indebted to external sources of authority, know-how, and resources.
    • Speaker:
    • Mohammed Moussa is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University. He was previously a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. Mohammed completed his doctorate at the University of Exeter.

    [open]
    • The Workshop “The Mufti of Mecca and Pontianak, Abdullah al-Zawawi: Networks and Manuscripts in the Arab Peninsula and the Southeast Asian Archipelago” will be held by C01 “Analyses of Connectivities by Digital Humanities Methods.”
    • Presentation:
    • Yuki SHIOZAKI (University of Shizuoka) “Abdullah al-Zawawi as the transregional Spiritual Leader of the Naqsbandi Sufi Order: The Publication of Risala al-Fawaid al-Wafiyya fi Sharh Ma‘na al-Tahiyya in Riau”
    • Ahmad Ginanjar Sha’ban (Universitas Nahdlatul Ulama) “The Meccan Mufti in “Negeri Jawi”: Sayyid Abdullah al-Zawawi (1850-1924), His Fatwas, Letters and Travels in Indonesia”
    • Detail:
    • Abdullah ibn Muhammad Salih al-Zawawi (1850 - 1924) was ulama from Mecca, known as the Mufti of Shafi‘i School. Through his life, his eminent scholarship attracted disciples from corners of the world. On the other hand, his stance on controversies in the transitional age forced him to exile from his home ground Mecca. During his exile from 1893 to 1909, he traveled around Egypt, India, Japan, and Southeast Asia. As a result, his wandering was reported by rising Muslim journalism in Asia and formed network of hid supporters, especially in Southeast Asian Archipelago. In 1896 he was appointed as the Mufti of Pontianak, the Sultanate in Kalimantan Island.
    •  This workshop is aiming to visualize Abdullah al-Zawawi’s network based on manuscripts such as letters, ijazah, and his Islamic literary works. While he was considered as the paramount scholar in Shafi‘i School, he was also a representative spiritual leader in the Naqsbandi Sufi Order.
    •  The presentations show the acceleration of transregional integration in the ulama networks during the transitional period. Abdullah al-Zawawi was a node-person of plural networks. It is significant to trace how a scholar became a node of transregional Islamic networks.

    Seminar “Global Social Theory in the Muslim World”
    [open]
    • Title: Global Social Theory in the Muslim World
    • Speaker: Mohammed Moussa (Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University)
    • Abstract:People, ideas and technology seem to circulate with increasing speed and across longer distances in the twenty-first century. Although globalization is often cited in attempts to make intelligible the sense of ever-closer proximity between different cultures and societies, this account reflects a Eurocentric model of diffusion from a Western core to non-Western peripheries. This workshop seeks to decentre this tunnel vision prevalent in much of contemporary social theory that ignores the role of agency and change in the Muslim world. A global social theory that draws upon the insights of Jack Goody, Sanjay Subrahmanyam and James Blaut can reveal the interconnections within the Muslim world and with other regions in the travel of people, ideas and practices.
    • Speaker: Mohammed Moussa is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at Istanbul Sabahattin Zaim University. He was previously a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. Mohammed completed his doctorate at the University of Exeter.

    Mapping Medieval Śaiva Centers with non-Indic Materials
    [open]
    • There are non-Indic—Chinese, Arabic, and Persian—sources that mention South Asian geography from the 7th to the 14th centuries. Those geographical names often come with information on religious practices in those areas. These sources have been known and studied but many contributions—made by the early 20th century—have become dated in the light of advancements in various fields. There have also been scarce attempts to cross-reference all the sources, including the ones in Indic languages, to have a comprehensive picture of medieval South Asian religious landscape. Such a map, especially regarding Buddhist or Śaiva practices, is possible because they are frequently mentioned in the non-Indic sources. In this workshop, we try to draw such a map focused on Śaiva practice. We will read the original sources and cross-reference them with each other. We will also survey relevant recent developments in archaeology, history, art history, etc.

    • Dr. Mostafa Khalili (JSPS Overseas Research Fellow; Visiting Researcher of the IAAMES)
    • “Beyond Centre-Periphery Approach: Inter-minority Tensions and Development of Contested Categories of Kurdish Mobilisation in Iran”
    • Abstract: Kurdish history in the last several decades represents their proclivity towards ethnic mobilisation. The identity politics that shape the incentive behind the mobilisation of different Kurdish subgroups are usually complex and occasionally serve contradictory political ambitions. To unfold such complexities, as this research suggests, shifting the lens of analysis from a common centre-periphery (state vs. Kurdish nationalist) approach to comprehending the identity politics in the local context is helpful. This research takes an interest in the ethnographic study of the social processes that shape the dynamics of Kurdish mobilisation in multi-ethnic Urmia city in northwest Iran, where Kurmanji-speaking Kurds live together with Azerbaijani Turks, and in close proximity to Sorani-speaking Kurds of Iran in neighbouring areas. It is argued that for the subjects of this study, the strategies for political mobilisation in the local field of Urmia often contradict each other, varying from denial of the Kurdish nation at the inter-ethnic level to dividing it at the intra-ethnic level and romanticising it at the transnational level. The broader contribution of this research is to elucidate that the contradictory ethnic mobilisation incentives could coexist independently from pursuing an exclusive political end when they all are characterised by an emancipatory force—a politico-symbolic struggle over power and prestige.

    • 17:00. Emi GOTO (ILCAA) Introduction to the film
    • In August 2021, as the Taliban set out to establish a new regime, some people went out to the streets to hold demonstrations. One of the groups raised banners that read, “Afghan women exist (zanān-i afghān vojūd dārand)”. In Japan, Afghan women still have the image of being “covered”. However, Mohtarama, a brilliant film directed by Malek Shafiʼi and Diana Saqeb, tells us that these women have fought for decades to build a better society by developing their ideas, discussing issues with others, and taking to the streets to raise their voices. At Herat in 2010, Kabul in 2009, and Mazare Sharif in 2011, women—an owner of burqa shop, protest attendees, and women who were forced to marry at the age of 12—expressed their views on what is like to be a woman in their society. In this workshop, we would like to take a closer look at the situation to which women have been relegated in Afghanistan and the feminism that has been developing amid this environment, both in terms of the difficulties faced by people and the hopes they hold in their hearts.

    Workshop “Using Transkribus to explore networks in Islamicate societies: An introductory guide”
    [open]
    • Presentation:Alex Mallett
    • Over the last few years, digital technology has allowed scholars to collate and research huge quantities of source materials very quickly, in particular using big data techniques. One of the simplest but most useful of these has been the plethora of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software that has enabled researchers to search for various keywords in multi-volume historical sources and gain results almost instantly. However, these programmes have been almost exclusively focused on printed, published texts, leaving manuscripts and other handwritten materials left out. Yet recently, a new programme has been developed, Transkribus, which enables scholars to digitally search across handwritten source material in the same way as for printed texts with OCR. In this talk, I will introduce Transkribus and its main features, and explore how it can be used to reconstruct networks and connectivity in Islamic society, primarily using the example of documents found in archives in Malta. Group C01 and B01 of “Islamic Trust Studies” will hold a workshop “Using Transkribus to explore networks in Islamicate societies: An introductory guide” on May 29th, 2021
