Call for Papers
1st International Conference on Peace and Conflict Resolution (ICPCR)
Tehran, Iran, April 29-30, 2019
In the premodern world, geographical knowledge was influenced by religious ideas and beliefs. The conference seeks to analyse, how the religious character of geographic knowledge in the period from ca. 1150 to 1550 lingered on in classical as well as new forms of presenting geography. To open up a comparative perspective, case studies of Latin-Christian works are complemented by examples of the Arabic-Islamic geographic tradition. The focus lies on sources that combine texts with cartographic depictions, be it maps of the known world or of its parts or regions.
Professor Finbarr Barry Flood (New York University) will be speaking on ‘Islam and Image: Beyond Aniconism and Iconoclasm’
