Full Description

Much recent work in the history of science has focused on the circulation of knowledge within Europe, across the Atlantic World, and between the two poles of East Asia and Western Europe. The movement of knowledge across Eurasia (and especially across Central Asia) during the same period has been much less well-researched, despite recent scholarship on the silk routes. This volume considers the movement and circulation of materials, people, and practices-things that do not necessarily take a written form-across the Eurasian continent in the late medieval and early modern period, ca. 750 to 1800. Contributors examine processes of knowledge-making across large spans of time and distance and explore the methodological and evidentiary challenges of following non-textual materials and processes.
