Abstract
This is the ninth volume of CHESFAME’s proceedings, with contributions from the twenty-third and twenty-fourth meetings of CHESFAME, which were held at the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium) in May 2015 and 2016. This collected volume of fifteen contributions once again reflect the uniquely wide range of the research and debates that —as also stated in the prefaces of previous proceedings— have always constituted CHESFAME’S core business, ever since its first meeting in 1992. As always, many of these contributions again have little more in common than their geographical, chronological and historiographical links with the Islamic eastern Mediterranean world between the tenth and the fifteenth centuries CE. As always, also, these contributions represent in their diversity the crux of CHESFAME’s remit, the key to its success over many years and the unique essence of its scholarly identity: its organisational set-up around principles of multi-disciplinarity and of trans-cultural and trans-dynastic cross-fertilization, long before these became fashionable buzz-words in Western higher education and academia. In line with the tradition of CHESFAME meetings and proceedings, this ninth collected volume is once again divided in three dynastic sections (each arranged alphabetically by the authors’ surnames): first a condensed Fatimid section (1 chapter), and then two well represented sections on Zengid and Ayyubid times (6 chapters) and on the so-called Mamluk era (8 chapters). The Fatimid section represents in integrated approach to the rich intersection of literary narrative and material culture (Richter-Bernburg). The Zengid and Ayyubid section furthers this (Ducène, Nicolle, Piana), but also opens up towards the engagements with the history of ideas, of discourse, and of mentalities more in general (Antrim, Goudi, Zouihal). The Mamluk section finally similarly combines discussion of material culture (Abdel Barr) and literature (Lelli, Martel-Thoumian) with the history of ideas (Post) as well as with engagements with the highly diverse social worlds from East and West that connected in often surprising ways with the sultanate and its many agents (Claverie, Coureas, Wijntjes).
