Registration form Autumn School Bonn 2022
The Centre for Dependency and Slavery Studies at Bonn University (BCDSS) and the Netherlands Interuniversity School of Islamic Studies (NISIS) are inviting abstracts for an Autumn School, aimed at Master-level and PhD researchers, on the theme of “Coercion, slavery, and relations of dependency in the Islamicate world”, to be held at Bonn University from 31 October to 4 November 2022.
The Autumn School will feature four keynote speakers, Serena Tollino (Bern), Ehud Toledano (Tel Aviv), Sebastian Sons (Bonn), and Paolo Gaibazzi (Bayreuth).
The Autumn School welcomes papers on a broad range of topics relating to the culturally and historically determined structures and patterns of coercion and dependency in the Islamicate world. We would like to discuss all forms of bondage in the Islamicate World, including debt bondage, convict labor, tributary labor, servitude (including in cultural and religious domains), serfdom, coerced domestic work and wage labor, and various types of patronage.
You can register below until 1 September 2022.
