Exhibition launch: Masked Faces: Untold Stories from the Arabian-Persian Gulf

Manami Goto, a PhD student at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, presents this new exhibition for Summer 2018. The female face mask, regionally known as burquʿ or baṭūla, is a part of the traditional but disappearing material culture of the Arabian-Persian Gulf. Each face mask is handmade to fit the wearer’s face and conveys an intricate amount of socio-cultural detail about the wearer. The shape, colour, material, design, and embroidery are selected depending on the wearer’s age, origin, marital status, ethnicity, religious or tribal affiliation, number of children, and socio-economic status. Wearing the face mask is also strongly associated with honour, piety, and pride. Through the presentation of material collections and photographs of masked women, this exhibition intends to shed light on the women in the region and their intimate and unique relationship with their masks.

Iranian-Kurdish Cultural Production: Past, Present and Future

This workshop will take place on 17-18 September 2018 at the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies and aims to open scholarly discussion on the Kurdish cultural heritage of Iran and its relation to contemporary Kurdish cultural creation. While certain aspects of Kurdish culture, such as its music, are well appreciated and celebrated in Iran, other vibrant activities in literature, the visual arts and cinema are much less well known. We hope to open avenues of research in vital areas hardly explored hitherto. The workshop has been made possible by a grant awarded to Farangis Ghaderi by Iran Heritage Foundation and the support of Centre for Kurdish Studies. As well as providing an opportunity for analytic and theoretical discussion, the workshop seeks to showcase contemporary Kurdish art through music performance by prominent Iranian Kurdish musician Arash Moradi and a poetry reading session. [The call for paper was published on 24 April and deadline for submission is 10 June 2018.] Full details here: https://iismm.hypotheses.org/30086. Full details
