This panel explores movements of people and objects to and from Baghdad during the Abbasid caliphate. This is considered the city's golden age as the centre of its own World System, the capital of the Eastern caliphate as well as a point of reference for the world around it. Papers will investigate the practical matters of how the city communicated with its surroundings and the outer world, as well as questions of scholarly affiliation linked to geographical locations.
