Abstract

This panel is an interdisciplinary, comparative inquiry into both the construction and the contestation of imperial space in the 14th and 15th centuries from Christian and Islamic sources (Burgundian, Ottoman, Mamluk, Mongol). Each of the papers will focus on the ideological construction of geographies of the Eastern Mediterranean and Arabian Peninsula and will offer a theoretical reflection on the relationship of propaganda, empire and space.
