Networks and Connections across the Great Asian World

From far-flung networks of Jewish spice traders to Facebook, from comfortable Islamic cities to the great beyond, from letters crossing continents to text messages, Dr. Stewart Gordon relates the first globalized Islamic world to our own globalized world. He will discuss networks of trust, intellectual connections and the mental side of travel, using passages from his book, When Asia was the World, maps, images from the period and photographs from his travels.
