Medicine in Bible and Talmud” CALL FOR PAPERS 2019 – Ancient Medical Expertise and Healing Experts

European Association of Biblical Studies (EABS), Warsaw –  11-14 August 2019

Finals Submission date: 28 FEBRUARY 2019

For the research unit “Medicine in Bible and Talmud” convened by Markham J. Geller and Lennart Lehmhaus and supported by the Collaborative Research Center SFB 980 “Episteme in Motion”, Freie Universitaet Berlin (http://www.sfb-episteme.de/en/teilprojekte/sagen/A03/index.html), we welcome contributions on ancient medicine and knowledge that fall into the general scope of our research unit as outlined on our website (https://www.eabs.net/EABS/Research-Units/Research_Units/Research_Units_2019/Medicine_in_Bible_and_Talmud.aspx).

For the next meeting in Warsaw 2019 we invite proposals for individual presentations or for pre-organized panel-sessions on the theme, “Even the best among doctors is destined for Gehenna/Hell- ancient medical expertise and healing experts”. The thematic sessions will deal with questions of experts and expertise in various medical and religious cultures of (Late) Antiquity, ideally from a comparative perspective.

Thematic Outline

It has become a common notion that the ancient “medical marketplace” was not populated by competing medical schools and high-profile medical authors alone. Rather, this was a crowded arena with a variety of actors, in which different types and fields (e.g. medical subfields, botany, pharmaceutics, astrology/astronomy, religion, and philosophy) of related expertise merged, complemented but also fiercely contested each other. Healing expertise comprised various approaches (diagnosis/prognosis; recipes, diet, and other cures including amulets and incantations; divination, dream interpretation, dream healing and incubation; charismatic healing) in different contexts (private households, a doctor’s or pharmacist’s house, public places, temples, churches, monasteries etc.). What was the attitude of so-called political, intellectual or religious elites (like priests, rabbinic sages, philosophers, medical authors, Christian clergy, heads of academies etc.) to and their involvement in the field of medicine? Do ancient sources relate to the role of women as healing experts and to what extent may one discern a gender bias that reflect hierarchies of authority or prerogatives of male “legit” experts against “illicit” female healing personnel?

In a dialogue with current research on ancient medicine and sciences, this panel aims at discussing how medical and related types of expertise manifests itself in and were appropriated to different, overlapping traditions, practices, and socio-historical settings. This pertains to traditions that were primarily associated with religious and normative discourse and (ritual) practices such as medical (technical) information integrated in religious texts and contexts (biblical, rabbinic, early Christian and Islamic, mystical etc.). However, is also aims at medical traditions that developed in dialogue with or contained philosophical and theological questions.

How do authority and authorship interlace? Which strategies of self-fashioning, claims to expertise and superior knowledge techniques (theories, taxonomies, empiricism) play a major role, also for the transmission of certain knowledge? Papers can also address the framing of medical expertise in specific genres like case (hi)stories, question and answer formats, anecdotes and other narratives. May one discern some striking differences between so-called miraculous healing stories and other healing narratives? Alternatively, do these various approaches mix within our sources? How do language and narratives about illness and health function among and between patients and doctors in different traditions and various healing contexts? What other aspects and cultural specificities may we observe in the interaction between different medical experts, on the one hand, and between patients and the healing experts they attended to, on the other?

As mentioned in the research unit’s description, we welcome papers that relate to one or more of these issues in relevant traditions and periods, if possible, with a comparative (synchronic or diachronic perspective), while discussing the central theoretical or methodological assumptions and challenges involved.

Irmgard Coninx Prize Fellowship for Transregional Studies 2019/2020
(Application Deadline: 31 January 2019).

The Berlin-based Forum Transregionale Studien and the Irmgard Coninx Foundation invite postdoctoral researchers in the humanities and social sciences to apply for the Irmgard Coninx Prize Fellowship for Transregional Studies in the framework of its research programs

Europe in the Middle East— The Middle East in Europe (EUME) and
Prisma Ukraїna – Research Network Eastern Europe.

Processes of globalization and fragmentation, increased mobility of things, persons, and ideas as well as new forms of immobility and shrinking public spaces transform individual life worlds, politics and whole societies. Exchange and interaction, entanglement and networks characterize our world as much as their opposites. This requires closer collaboration between scholars from different regional backgrounds and a fundamental thematic and conceptual reconfiguration of the academic disciplines, which largely continue to analyze the world within the framework of nation-states or geographic/cultural areas.
The Forum Transregionale Studien aims to contribute to such a revision that includes curriculum reform, terminological innovation, and a rethinking of the prevailing narratives of social change. By bringing scholars from a variety of disciplines and from different locations to Berlin, the Forum promotes intellectual dialogue across fields of specialization and between area studies and the systematic disciplines. The aim is to arrive at a novel understanding of the interrelated processes that have shaped social dynamics locally and globally.

The Prize
The Irmgard Coninx Prize Fellowship for Transregional Studies consists of one research fellowship of up to 10 months and is awarded to a project dealing with a particular research question that relates disciplinary and area-based knowledge in mutually beneficial ways.
The winner of the award will be able to carry out a research project of his or her own choice and to participate in the scholarly activities of one of the above-mentioned research programs at the Forum. Like the other Fellows, he or she will be affiliated with a research institution in Berlin. The prize will be awarded by a joint jury of the Forum and the Irmgard Coninx Foundation.

Application
Applicants should have obtained their doctorate within the last seven years. As a rule, the fellowships starts on 1 October 2019 and ends on 31 July 2020. Postdoctoral fellows will receive a monthly stipend of 2,500 € plus a supplement depending on their personal situation. Organizational support regarding visa, insurances, housing, etc. will be provided. Fellows are obliged to work in Berlin and to contribute to the ongoing discussions at the Forum. The working language of the fellowship is English.

An application consists of

• a curriculum vitae
• a project description (no longer than 5 pages, including a brief summary) stating what the scholar will work on in Berlin if granted a fellowship, and to which program of the Forum the project relates to
• names of two university faculty members who can serve as referees (no letter of recommendation required).

The application should be submitted as one PDF file in English and should be received by 31 January 2019, sent by e-mail to:

Forum Transregionale Studien
Attn: Georges Khalil
Wallotstrasse 14
14193 Berlin
office@trafo-berlin.de

The Forum Transregionale Studien is a research organization that provides scope for collaboration among researchers with different regional and disciplinary perspectives and that appoints researchers from all over the world as Fellows.

مکتب صوفیه و فلسفه: داد و ستدها

تاریخ اعتبار: 1397/09/24

The intellectual history of Sufism is intertwined with that of philosophy in the Islamic world. This conference will explore and re-examine the relationship between Sufism and philosophy.

From the mystical strains in the writings of Avicenna and Ibn Ṭufayl to the philosophical Sufism of Ibn ʿArabī’s school, the encounter between Islamic mysticism and philosophy has produced a rich nexus of mutual influence and rapprochement, as well as polemical engagement and debate.

Despite the extent and significance of such interactions, modern scholars in the fields of Sufism and Islamic philosophy alike have often been reluctant to venture beyond the conventional boundaries of their respective disciplines and investigate the links that tie Sufi thought to the philosophical traditions of the Muslim world. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for a cross-disciplinary exploration and re-examination of the relationship between Sufism and philosophy. Key discussion-points include: A) Sufism’s reception of ancient and late antique philosophical traditions. When did this process begin, how did it manifest itself, and through which channels did it occur? B) Falsafa’s interaction with classical Sufism. What impact did the mystical aspects of Avicenna’s thought have on the subsequent development of Islamic philosophy? Have such aspects been over-emphasized or under-estimated? C) ‘Philosophical Sufism’ in the post-classical era. How apt is this label? To what extent did the members of Ibn ʿArabī’s school adopt or engage with theories propounded by al-Fārābī, Avicenna, Suhrawardī or the Ikhwān al-Ṣafāʾ?

محل برگزاری: لیدن هلند
تاریخ اعتبار: 1397/04/24

 

This one-day workshop brings together graduate students and early career scholars working on topics related to Shiʿism in all periods and from any disciplinary perspective. The workshop is open to work on Zaydi, Twelver, Ismaili and other forms of Shiʿism. The aim is thereby to allow for the discussion both of micro-historical and ethnographic specificities as well as long durée patterns and developments.

The workshop will address the concept of piety in its material expression, its literary representation and its theoretical articulation.

Central topics include:

• Belief and its implications in philosophy, theology, and law
• Rites and rituals in spaces and texts
• Spatial, material, and literary manifestations of piety
• Networks
• Impiety
• The daily lives of pious beings

We particularly welcome scholars working on the intersection between the material expression of piety, and the intellectual or theoretical articulation of what it means to be Shiʿi. Contributions will be expected to be clear in how they define and understand piety, whether a theological conception or as lived tradition.

For consideration, please send a 300-word abstract to lussi@hum.leidenuniv.nl by July 15th.

The language of the workshop will be English. Travel subsidies will be available for participants.

About the Leiden University Shiʿi Studies Initiative

Islamic studies is a flourishing field, but the study of Shiʿi Islam in all its forms still remains underpopulated. The primary objective of LUSSI is to connect scholars and address lacunae in the field by promoting the study of Shiʿism in all its expressions and disciplinary approaches.
