Chinese Abstract




English Abstract 


This conference is a part of a series of meetings which focus on the analysis of the interaction between Europe and Asia, mainly between the 16th and the 18th centuries in the field of mathematical sciences, with the main focus on China, and also bringing to the fore the role of Portugal as an agent of transmission of European science to East Asia, and simultaneously as an agent of the transmission of knowledge of East Asia to Europe. Within this broad theme, the conference will be more specifically devoted to visual and textual representations. In particular, we intend to analyse problems of transmission of knowledge associated with the work of translators and with the practice of cartography.
