Abstract

This volume reconsiders literacy and communication in pre-modern societies, focusing especially on how material form affects the way textual artefacts are understood and interpreted. By bringing together scholars from diverse disciplines such as archaeology, medieval studies, and Islamic studies, this volume provides the specialist and non-specialist with insights on how humans express themselves through writing and material culture.

Abstract

How does one define and explore the “material presence of the written in non-typographical cultures?” The interdisciplinary and collaborative essays in this handbook present theoretical principles, describe text-bearing materials and objects, and investigate the diverse practices related to text-bearing artifacts. The analysis is illustrated with examples drawn from a period of over 4,500 years.

Abstract

Going beyond the framework of a mere “Festschrift” in cumulative terms, this volume aims at contributing to recent discussions in the subject area of Middle Eastern studies focusing on individual and autobiographical voices discernible in pre-modern and contemporary Muslim societies. This approach reflects Prof Susanne Enderwitz’ seminal works on the topics of autobiography/autofiction and Islamicate expressions of identity. Among the contributors are Lale Behzadi, Michael Ursinus, Henning Sievert, Paula Schrode, Johannes Zimmermann, Ines Weinrich, and many others.; In der Islamkunde wird seit einigen Jahren sehr lebhaft diskutiert, inwieweit „Horizonte des Individuellen“ in literarischen und dokumentarischen Quellen wahrnehmbar sind. Der Band ist bewusst nicht als kumulativ strukturierte Festgabe konzipiert, sondern soll vielmehr an fachwissenschaftlich relevante Diskussionen anknüpfen. Mit Beiträgen von Lale Behzadi, Michael Ursinus, Henning Sievert, Paula Schrode, Johannes Zimmermann, Ines Weinrich u.v.a.
