The COST Action “Islamic Legacy: Narratives East, West, South, North of the Mediterranean (1350-1750)” [CA 18129] is launching a call for a Conference entitled “The Islamic Legacy in the 20th and 21st Centuries”. The event that we are disseminating is being organised within the this project, which as the purpose to provide a transnational and interdisciplinary approach capable of overcoming the segmentation that currently characterizes the study of relations between Christianity and Islam in late medieval and early modern Europe and the Mediterranean.

Scope

The legacy of a medieval and/or early modern Islamic presence in both European and Mediterranean countries extends beyond 1750 and continues to manifest itself in life today. One particularly striking example is the powerful influence in current Spanish politics of ideas invoking the medieval heritage of Spain, including concepts of conquest and reconquest, often specifically in relation to the fall of Granada in 1492. Another example lies in the restoration of Ottoman heritage in the urban space of Istanbul that began after the pro-Islamic AKP party came to power in 2002. The aim of this conference is to bring together scholars who would be interested in comparing aspects of life in European and Mediterranean countries today that demonstrate how Islamic and Christian interactions and influences in Medieval and Early-Modern Europe are still noticeable in contemporary cultural, political, historical and religious life.
