I. “Those Damned Infidels” – The Frankish Raid on Alexandria in 1365 as a Turning Point. The Interdependence of Trade, Religion and Politics.

Anna K. Angermann, M.A., Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin

This project examines how the Frankish raid on Alexandria in 1365 shook the relationship between “East” and “West” or Cyprus and the Mamluk Empire and influenced medieval Mamluk society.

II. Fremde Apotheker in Venedig und deren Handel im Mittelmeer im 15. Jahrhundert: der Fall Agostino Altucci aus Arezzo

III. Trans-European Diasporas: Migration, Minorities, and Diasporic Experience in East/Central Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean 500-1800

Cooperation with the CEU Budapest

The cooperation will explore questions such as: how did (the same) diasporic groups (for instance Roman soldiers, Jewish or Morisco refugees, Venetian or Florentine merchant groups) interact with their host societies in such different places as Constantinople, Buda and Cairo?  How did diasporic experience contribute to the processes of cultural mediation and exchange between the two regions under study?  How did diasporic communities negotiate legal regimes and extra-territorial rights in various East/Central European and Eastern Mediterranean contexts? Did the trade routes match the identifiable lines of communication among and within diasporic communities, as well as between them and the homeland or host society? How did different local concepts of identity and belonging inform the trans-regional diasporic experience of communities under study? [...]
