Revisiting the History of Medieval Libya (7th-16th centuries)

Sources, Analyses, Projects

A monthly Webinar (Zoom)

Link on demand at:

Despite being well-known for the Greek and Roman era, Libya remains rather unknown for the ten centuries of the Islamic era, that began with the Islamic conquest in the 1st/7th century and ended with the progressive establishment of the Ottoman rule in the 10th/16th century.

Thus, this webinar aims at reactivating the academic interest toward this space, that can be conceptualized as a crossroad within the global Islamic world, connecting the Maghrib with the Mashriq, the Mediterranean Sea and Saharan Africa. Following the last conference cycle (2022-2023), in 2023-2024 we will continue to explore the sources available to the historians to write, reshape and reconsider the history of medieval Libya. A special emphasis will be put on new corpuses, especially material documentation.
