Spread of Knowledge (Topoi E-CSG-III)

The encounter of diverse cultures in the Mediterranean and the Near East repeatedly triggered innovative developments, the results of which have reached other, more distant (from both the synchronic and diachronic perspective) cultural spaces. Mapping the circulation of technological output and the knowledge that followed in its wake means mapping not only areas determined by specific technologies, but areas of potential theoretical development as well. Besides technology transfer, the mapping work was accomplished by focusing also on the concepts of innovation and the globalization of knowledge.
