Oct. 9, 2014 Toward an Understanding of Regional Geography
Our workshop "Toward an Understanding of Regional Geography" focusses on the geography of the project’s key regions and the challenges of mapping the regional geography of this five key regions in the framework of historical research.
Having in mind that our modern perception of regional entities is closely linked to concepts of nation and state, we have to take a closer view on how regional entities were defined and bound together in the early Islamic empire.
- What was the geographic landscape of our areas?
- How did it influence travel routes, economy and interaction between the local population?
- What were the predominant tights e.g. family, marriage, economy for a certain region?
- Have there been networks of interconnected cities and valleys?
- How were different regions connected with each other?
- What were the major travel routes?
