The Habsburg Mediterranean, 1500–1800

On 10th and 11th September 2018, the international symposium 'The Habsburg Mediterranean, 1500–1800' will take place at The Austrian Hospice in Jerusalem. In the light of recent debates on Mediterranean contact zones, mobile imperial agents, and Habsburg-Ottoman frontier zones, this symposium explores the early modern 'Habsburg Mediterranean'. During the 16th and 18th century, the Mediterranean was a profoundly significant space for the Habsburg monarchy. Yet up to now, research did not address the cultural, economic, material, military, and political presence of Habsburg subjects in the early modern Mediterranean in a comparative perspective. Which personal and institutional relationships did Habsburg subjects negotiate, cultivate, maintain and subvert between Madrid, Seville, Barcelona, Brussels, Prague, Vienna, Rome, Jerusalem, Istanbul, Cairo, and Tunis? How did the Mediterranean, as an imaginative and actual space, tie the Habsburg Empire with its oversea territories together? Did Habsburg border zones in the Balkans, Adria, and in Iberia shape the history of the Mediterranean Sea and did Mediterranean events, in return, shape imperial realities at land? To which extent shifts this focus our understanding of the Habsburg Empire’s peripheries and centres and invites us to approach the history of the Holy Roman Empire in Mediterranean or global terms? Can we trace aesthetic and material exchanges? In sum, the symposium will reflect on a Habsburg Thalassography that centred on the early modern Mediterranean.

No place would be more suitable than The Austrian Hospice in Jerusalem to organise a symposium that reconsiders Habsburg agents in their Mediterranean contexts. Founded by Emperor Francis Joseph I in 1856, the Austrian Hospice is located in the Old City of Jerusalem and has welcomed explorers and pilgrims, scholars and tourists ever since. The Hospice has thrived under the protection of the Habsburg Emperors until 1918, and since then under the guardianship of the Austrian State and the Roman Catholic Church. Dr Stefan Hanß (University of Cambridge/ University of Manchester) and Dr Dorothea McEwan (The Warburg Institute, University of London) are grateful for the consent of Hon.-Prof. MMag. Markus St. Bugnyár (The Austrian Hospice Jerusalem) to host the event.
