Primary Instructor:

The early modern period saw the rise of two great Eurasian empires, the Spanish Habsburgs and the Ottomans, who played out their universalist aspirations in the Mediterranean frontier. In this intense imperial competition (and perhaps propelled by it), a different set of actors — ambassadors, interpreters, soldiers, corsairs, merchants, renegades, and captives — negotiated spaces for interaction and exchange. Through a close reading of travel narratives, literary texts, ambassadors’ reports, soldiers’ tales, captivity stories, as well as biographies of merchants and go-betweens, this course will examine the politics of identity in the eastern, southern, western, and northern shores of the Mediterranean.
