Workshop: Acts of Protection in the early Islamic Empire

Event Description

Eline Scheerlinck and the rest of the Emco team are organising a workshop with international specialists on the theme: Acts of Protection in the early Islamic Empire.

The goal of this workshop will be to explore the relevance of arrangements of protection, and threatened withdrawal of protection as part of the frameworks of reciprocity and solidarity which allowed the early Islamic Empire to function. Through specific documents, or the historical or literary presentation of specific events, the participants will present instances where protection is offered, requested, or withheld.

See our programme for a list of the participants.
