Call for Papers: Cartography between Europe and the Islamic World 1100 – 1600 (London 2014)

Call for Papers
Cartography between Europe and the Islamic World 1100 – 1600
London, Queen Mary, University of London, September 8-9, 2014
Deadline: 21 February 2014

cfp_cartographyThe Leverhulme Network ‘Cartography between Europe and the Islamic World’ aims to promote comparative, cross-disciplinary scholarship on Islamic and European cartography by bringing together experts in these two fields for a two-day symposium to be held at Queen Mary, University of London, on September 8-9, 2014. Participants are invited to explore moments of contact between traditions (e.g. twelfth-century Spain; the court of Roger II of Sicily; fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Italian cartography; Piri Reis and post-Columban cartography of the early sixteenth century) as well as differences and divergences. Reflections on the methodology of the comparative study of maps are also welcome.

Papers may wish to address some of the following topics, but need not be restricted to them:

  • the contexts – material, political, spiritual, artistic – of mapmaking in Europe and the Islamic world
  • audiences for maps; ‘cartographic literacy’
  • interactions between European and Islamic mapmaking: exchange, influence, borrowing
  • reception of classical texts, e.g. Ptolemy’s Geographia/Jugrafiya
  • patronage
  • the cartography of al-Idrisi
  • nautical mapmaking in the Mediterranean
  • cartography in the Ottoman empire (up to c. 1600)
  • comparative histories of cartography

Please send proposals consisting of an abstract of c. 300-500 words for 20-minute papers to Matthew Champion (m.s.champion@qmul.ac.uk) by February 21, 2014. Proposals are encouraged from doctoral students, early-career and established scholars, and travel and accommodation for speakers will be funded.
