The Visual World of Persianate Culture
University of Edinburgh, 24-26 October 2014
This international conference will explore the importance of the visual in the Persian world and examine the historic role of visual culture in the shaping, influencing, and transforming of Persian cultures across the various historical periods, ranging from pre-Islamic cultures, medieval / early modern Islamic cultures, to
Iran's modern visual cultures. An immensely rich visual culture has
always existed in Iran and the surrounding regions from early antiquity, often shaped by encounters with different zones of contact and patronised by ruling elites and dynasties with a myriad of artistic and cultural traditions, needs and agendas. This conference is sponsored by the Iran Heritage Foundation.
