Session: Inside / Outside in Islamic Art and Architecture 

Edinburgh, April 7 – 9, 2016
Deadline: Nov 9, 2015: http://www.aah.org.uk/annual-conference/sessions2016/session15#sthash.epSO0Mff.dpu

Association of Art Historians (AAH) 2016 Annual Conference and Bookfair, University of Edinburgh

This panel calls for empirically grounded papers that engage with theoretical and methodological issues pertaining to various conceptualisations of inside and outside in Islamic art and architecture. Topics may include, but are not limited to: the relationship between peripheral and central figures in illuminated manuscripts; compositional means of defining or redefining an inside and an outside; the relationship between text and image; questions of audience and visibility; borders and frames in manuscripts and portable objects; architectural means of inclusion and exclusion; architecture as the configuration of an outside as well as an inside; sensory means of defining an inside; an insider’s experience of space versus an outsider’s experience. Papers can focus on any part of the Islamic world from all periods, but especially welcome are comparative studies that discuss multiple works / buildings across space and/or time.

Email paper propsals to the session convenor(s) by 9 November 2015.
