The Early Modern Mediterranean:
This seminar will explore topics and debates in early modern Mediterranean history, 1450-1750. Historically and in current affairs, the Mediterranean is often portrayed as a "borderland" or "frontier" separating vastly different cultures and peoples: the Christian and Muslim worlds; Europe, Asia and Africa. Historians, however, have shown that the Mediterranean has been a space of constant entanglement and exchange, a liquid continent where societies and cultures met, overlapped and co-exited, sometimes peacefully, sometimes violently, since ancient times.
