Yoichi Isahaya (JSPS fellow) made a presentation at a workshop held in Istanbul for 6-8 December, "Maragha and its Scholars: the Intellectual Culture of Medieval Maragha, ca. 1250-1550" (program: http://impact.orient.ox.ac.uk/wp-content/uploads/Maragha-and-its-Scholars-Program.pdf). This workshop focused on an observatory in Maragha (now in northwestern Iran) and scholars who were working there or influenced by the works of former scholars. The Maragha observatory, which was established in the middle of the 13th century under the Mongol hegemony, functioned as one of the foremost nexuses of the scholarly networks in the Islamicate world (sometimes across that world). The IMPAcT project (http://impact.orient.ox.ac.uk/), which mainly deals with 13th to 16th century Islamic philosophy, theology and adjacent sciences, organized this workshop in collaboration with the Faculty of Oriental Studies at the University of Oxford and the German Oriental Institute in Istanbul. Isahaya talked under the title of "\'Ilm al-Mīqāt and \'Ilm al-Hay\'a: the role of Maragha in the differentiation of astronomy." Throughout the three-day workshop, the cohesive and meaningful discussion took place regardless of the formal or "informal" time (as part of the breaks between panels).
