Islamic Seas and Shores: Connecting the Medieval Maritime World
October 19-23 | Virtual
November 16-19 | Boston, Massachusetts


Description: While the importance of Islamic seafaring has been historically overlooked, a new wave of research is revealing the many ways that the Islamic world was shaped by water. Outdated paradigms, such as the decline of maritime commerce following the conquest, and old tropes such as the “Arab fear of the sea” are being overturned by studies focusing on how the Mediterranean, Red Sea, Persian Gulf, and Indian Ocean connected far-flung cultures, communities, and economies. This multi-year session will explore these connections region-by-region, to create a broader understanding of the development, expansion, and impact of Islamic maritime networks. This session aims to create a comprehensive view of the Islamic maritime world through archaeological and historical studies on seaborne trade and travel, mercantile networks, commodity production and maritime industry, as well as ports, coastal communities, and their associated hinterlands.

The 2022 session will focus on the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean.

The deadline to submit paper abstracts is March 15, 2022. For more information on submission guidelines visit:
