Slavery in the Black Sea Region, C. 900-1900: Forms of Unfreedom at the Intersection between Christianity and Islam

Tuesday 30 May 2017 - Wednesday 31 May 2017
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden

Leiden University will host the workshop: “Slavery in the Black Sea Region, c. 900-1900: Forms of Unfreedom at the Intersection between Christianity and Islam” on 30-31 May 2017. Based on their specific areas of expertise, the speakers will reflect on slavery in the Black Sea region as an encounter zone between East and West, Christianity and Islam. Contributions will be clustered under six main themes: Late Medieval and Early Modern Trends; Slavery among Christians; The Circassian Question; Raiders, Slaves, and Captives in Crimea; Slaves in the City (Istanbul); and The Black Sea and Global Slavery. The workshop aims to place the Black Sea in the wider debates on global slavery, while raising new conceptual questions that will illuminate and possibly modify current theories on medieval, early modern, and modern forms of unfreedom.
