Abstract

All sessions, Cities, Myths, and Literature I, II, and III are intended to find new connections between ancient myths and medieval constructions of real or imagined cities in literature. A special focus on Asian cities such as Qara Qorum and Tokyo should allow shedding new light on specific aspects of Western and Eastern images of cities and their importance.
