    Piracy and Captivity in the Mediterranean 1530 - 1810

    "Barbary Coast Captivity Narratives"

    Thursday, June 16 - Saturday, June 18, 2016 in the Claudiasaal and Türingsaal of the Claudiana, Herzog-Friedrich-Straße 3,(Altstadt, Claudiana), 6020 Innsbruck.

    Piracy and captivity were important issues for almost all Muslim and Christian regions that were to some degree involved in Mediterranean trade in the early modern era. Most of them, including the young United States of America, had to cope with corsairs capturing trading goods and enslaving members of their communities. Some survivors of Mediterranean piracy and enslavement later wrote or published accounts of their experiences.

    The aim of this conference was to look at these narratives in a variety of languages from a literary perspective, while putting them into a proper historical and cultural context.
