Trade and Trading Networks as Cultural Resources in Southeastern Iran
May 10 - May 11
The particular objective of this workshop is to shed light on trade as a resource in the provinces of Kerman, Hormozgan Sistan and Baluchestan and Southern Khorasan through different periods of time. Based on case studies, we will pinpoint how trade has affected the region in the past and how it shapes the life of its population today.
Questions to be tackled are:
- Under which conditions can trade be considered to become a resource?
- Which were the main routes connecting the inland with the coastal regions?
- How is value attributed to certain resources and what is the role of trading networks in this regard?
- How significant is local knowledge for trade relations past and present?
