"From Van to the Caspian Sea: Portuguese and Italian Maps of Eastern Anatolia and Armenia, 1500-1600"
Intervention en anglais

Various mapmaking traditions engaged with the East Anatolian - Caspian region in the sixteenth century, each looking at it from a different angle: while Ottomans geographers observed their empire from Istanbul, Venetians collected data from travellers and diplomats to Persia, and Portuguese cartographers observed the region from Goa. The presentation explores these points of contact and highlights the gaps they produced in the cartography of the region.
