[Call for Papers] The Art of Religions Encounter in Asia, 1500-1800, Deadline – 27 May 2022.
The Art of Religious Encounter in Asia will consider what objects retrieved from religious encounter can tell us about the first systematic era of globalization. When a new philosophy entered the arena, what can its material remnants tell us about how it negotiated local political and religious struggles: did it contribute to instability, become recoded with other associations, or simply evaporate in irrelevance?
This is just a small selection of the kinds of places, people, objects, and issues that contributed to the art of religious encounter. We would welcome proposals, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, on the objects of religious encounter in, or principally related to, Asia from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries.
