The seminar focuses on the eastern Mediterranean in a period of economic integration and political fragmentation marked by the crusades, the expansion of the Italian maritime republics, western colonization, and the conquests of the Turks. How did the Byzantines react to the new unsettled world around them? What was the role of the newcomers? Special attention will be paid to the crusades, cross-cultural contacts, and the Mediterranean economy.
