Trade

In this module we will take a look at trade. For the Medieval Middle East, trade was immensely important and it owned much of it's wealth and prosperity to trade. There are the romantic images of caravans carrying lush fabrics, porcelain and gold along the desert roads of the silk route. And there is the dark side of a flourishing slave trade. But how correct are our images of what the Islamic or Arab world was and is like? Why is it that many people know about Harems and very few people know about the legal innovations to enabled trade that we will also discuss in this module? To explore that question further we will introduce you to the concept of Orientalism....

We will discuss the outrage that followed professor Jonathan Brown's views on slavery and Islam.
