Call for Contributions: “Literary Snippets: Colophons Across Space and Time,” Institute for Advanced Study, April 1, 2022

April 1, 2022

The aim of the project is to bring together scholars from various disciplines to contribute to a volume that studies colophons in Middle Eastern manuscripts in various languages and traditions across space and time, including but not limited to, Arabic, Armenian, Coptic, Ethiopian, Hebrew, Persian, and Syriac – as well as the ancient traditions of Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Scholars interested in contributing may send via email a proposal between 1,000 and 3,000 words (i.e. a good first draft) for consideration. After acceptance, final papers are expected to be around 6,000 words.  Proposals are to focus on the colophon.

Proposal submission deadline is December 15, 2021.  Final papers are due April 1, 2022.  Submissions are to be sent via email directly to George A. Kiraz at gkiraz@ias.edu.
