Duration:
30/03/2017 to 01/04/2017
Abstract / short description:
How have place and space been conceived by writers and mapmakers in Islamicate parts of the world? Questioning the notion of genres, the conference explores the ways how spatial thought was entangled with political, religious, cultural, and intellectual history. The aim is to envisage a diversely linked spatial history, with new relevance for the study of Islamicate societies.
