  • Special Issue: Red Sea Connectivities in the Shadow of Imperialism
    • Abstract: This special issue originated in discussions at a workshop on "Cooperation, Coercion and Compulsion across the Red Sea from the Eighteenth Century to the Present" held at the Zentrum Moderner Orient in Berlin on 4–5 June 2015 and sponsored by the VolkswagenStiftung and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. In viewing the Red Sea world as a multifaceted socioeconomic system that connected the African and Arabian littorals, the workshop reflected recent trends in the study of the region as an historical space with its own dynamics and evolution. Northeast Africa Studies helped launch this discussion with its 2012 issue on "Space, Mobility, and Translocal Connections across the Red Sea Area since 1500," edited by Jonathan ... Read More

  • Early European Colonial Rule on the African Red Sea Littoral
    • Abstract: When did European colonial rule begin' In general, this question is treated as too obvious to merit serious attention. Historians usually posit the birth of colonial states as either the end of a campaign of conquest, the arrival of a settler community, or the signing of a treaty of protection with a local leader. Historians take these moments as transitions from precolonial to colonial periods because the forward guards of expanding European empires saw them as such. These were the moments when these agents of empires declared themselves "politically in charge." But there is a serious epistemological problem in taking these moments as starting points. Doing so takes the political culture of Europe more seriously ... Read More

  • From Yemen to Eritrea and Back: A Twentieth Century Family History
    • Abstract: The Saudi-led bombing campaign in Yemen, which began in March 2015, ushered in a new phase in the history of migration across the Red Sea. Tens of thousands of Yemenis have fled to Somalia, Somaliland, Djibouti, and Ethiopia to escape this military intervention. This is remarkable because Yemen has hosted hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants from the Horn of Africa since the early 1990s. Somali refugees and Ethiopian labor migrants crossed the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden to escape political violence and economic destitution, hoping to improve their livelihoods on the Arabian Peninsula. The Yemeni refugees that are now moving to the Horn of Africa are not the first Yemenis to seek out security on the ... Read More

  • Reviving Islam: Neo-Salafism Traversing Saudi Arabia and Egypt
    • Abstract: During the political reconfiguration in Egypt that followed President Mubarak's ousting in 2011, different forms of revivalist Islam or Salafism emerged alongside the creation of new Islamic political parties. The result was a new hybridization of Saudi interpretations of Islam with Egyptian political ideas and the rise of multiple contending Islamic forces in the region, each of which embodied various religious and political paradoxes. The multiplicity of these revivalist forces demonstrates the flexibility of a political Islam based on the pragmatic marriage of democratic politics with revivalist Islam. However, the formation of these new political–theological ideas had historical antecedents. Over the past ... Read More

  • Yemenite Jews in the Red Sea Trade and the Development of a New Diaspora
    • Abstract: Jonathan Miran writes: "Growing interest in the relationships and connections between regional, trans-regional, and global histories is beginning to recognize the role of the Red Sea region in world history."1 Miran points to the common climate and the marine routes that made it convenient to travel from shore to shore and facilitated the transportation of goods, people, and ideas. Current research shows that elaborate connections existed between countries on the west coast of the Red Sea (e.g., Yemen and Saudi Arabia) and those on its east coast (e.g., Egypt and Ethiopia). Despite differences in language, culture, and even appearance between the inhabitants of the African and the Arabian coasts, it is possible to ... Read More

  • A Twentieth-Century Merchant Network Centered on Jeddah: The
           Correspondence of Muḥammad b. Aḥmad Bin Ḥimd
    • Abstract: This article is based on a rare collection of twentieth-century merchant correspondence kept in the King Abdul Aziz Foundation for Research and Archives (Dārat al-Malik ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz, henceforth Dāra) in Riyadh. It attempts to give a brief, initial description based on a cursory examination of the collection. That such a brief and incomplete inspection of what is a much fuller collection merits publication at all is linked to the fact that, until now, no similar collections of merchant documents from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have been available to researchers working on the territories of present-day Saudi Arabia. Many such documents are probably held in private collections, and have at times been ... Read More

  • Red Sea Folk Beliefs: A Maritime Spirit Landscape
    • Abstract: When a wave covers them like the canopy (of clouds), they call to God, offering Him sincere devotion. . . .1Folk beliefs and practices reflect what people think and do, the lives they live and the meaning they give to their experiences.2 However, defining "folk belief" is doubly problematic because there is no consensus as to the definitions of either "folk" or "belief." Folklorists have offered many definitions of belief, though "the quest for a broadly based pragmatic theory" mentioned by Richard M. Dorson in 19633 continues even after fifty years. If "belief" is problematic to define, "folk" is even more so. Nonetheless, the subjects of maritime and land folk beliefs in the Red Sea's southern region have been ... Read More
