The East and West in Medieval and Early Modern Art conference seeks to explore connections between the Middle East, Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe from the fifth to the seventeenth centuries. The conference will focus on interactions between East and West as represented in visual culture from 500–1750. Papers that consider dialogue and exchange, transculturation, or cultural mobility along conflict and confrontation will be presented. Topics will include: maps and travel, missionaries and hagiography, embassies and political imagery, and will involve media such as paintings, sculptures, prints, ephemeral decorations, and the decorative arts. Going beyond the conventional modes of medieval and early modern art history, which has traditionally focused on only one cultural region, this conference seeks to highlight voyages, crossroads, border activities, and other ways in which art and artists linked more than one culture. Through this conference we seek to provide a forum for both historical and theoretical conversations that will address the most effective approaches for studying visual culture in a more globally encompassing fashion. The purpose of this conference is to provide a stage for discussion and interaction between medievalists and early modernists in Israel working on visual culture. We very much look forward to thinking jointly about these issues when we meet on January 9th, 2014.  For more information please feel free to contact the conference administrator:Ruth Lubashevsky –  rutkale@gmail.com
