This special edition of Eurasian Studies is based upon the conference “Iranian Cities from the Arab Conquest to the Early Modern Period”, held at Harvard University on 1 and 2 May 2015. In addition to a selection of the conference papers, the volume includes essays from scholars who were later invited to contribute.
The subject of the volume, medieval Iranian cities, has long been a favourite topic for historical research. Southwestern Iran, at the extremity of the Fertile Crescent, and Transoxiana at the northeastern end of the Iranian world, are home to some of the world’s oldest cities.
