Karen Pinto invited to deliver “What is Islamic about Islamic Maps?”

imageProfessor Karen Pinto was invited to deliver her paper on “What is Islamic about Islamic Maps?” at the “Holy Places in Medieval Islam” invitation only conference at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Karen received a tour on the miniature manuscript from the Mongol Ilkhanid period: “The World History of Rashid al-Din” of 1314, considered one of the masterpieces of Islamic miniature art. It is an important connective piece for her work on Islamic cartography – especially the image of Jonah coming out of the whale.
