Appropriation in and of the Premodern World

The First Annual Conference of Fordham and Ben-Gurion Universities

October 7th– 8th,  2018
Fordham University, Lincoln Center Campus
McMahon Hall 109, 155 West 60th Street, New York 

This conference examines the question of how members of different cultures and religious communities appropriated each other’s ideas, texts, legal practices, spaces, art, and material culture. Through contributions from a plurality of disciplinary fields and drawing on diverse methodological and theoretical approaches, we hope to explore the reasons, manners, and effects of those acts of appropriation and their historical and historiographic implications.
