"Dr. Glaire Anderson’s StoryMap juxtaposes medieval and early modern conceptions of Ibn Firnas (d. 887) with a resurgence in modern and contemporary celebrations of this early ‘scientist.’ Dr. Anderson’s multimedia essay guides us through a comparison of these descriptions across time and space, urging us to be more cognizant of the role of public perception - both past and present - in defining the place of Islamic societies in histories of science and technology."
