Description

This session will provide a forum for scholars to discuss slavery and the slave trade as part of the ongoing reevaluation of race, ethnicity, and socio-economic development of the medieval Mediterranean. The detailed studies by Debra Blumenthal, William Phillips, Youval Rotman, and Cristoph Cluse among many other leading scholars have demonstrated how slavery was fundamental to the economic and social life of Mediterranean Christian, Muslim, and Jewish communities. This session will focus on the role slavery as an economic force linking disparate religious and ethnic communities across religions and kingdoms, where the role of unpaid, forced labor provided a common economic and cultural relationship between Muslim and Christian communities controlling the Mediterranean Sea.
