Description

This panel will focus on cultural interactions between different ethnic and religious communities in Eastern Anatolia in the medieval period (1000-1500). Contact between Armenian, Georgians, Greeks, Turks, Mongols, and Europeans, among others, resulted in a dynamic cultural environment. Connected to both the Mediterranean and Iranian worlds, Eastern Anatolia served as a place where medieval peoples, ideologies, and ideas competed and co-existed with each other. The papers in this panel will address personal encounters through trade, travel, or diplomacy; cultural appropriation and translation in the literary and visual arts; and different communities’ perceptions of each other.
