From Mountain to Mountain: Exchange between Yemen and Ethiopia, Medieval to Modern

Chroniques du manuscrit au YémenSpecial Issue 1 (2017)

Edited by Anne Regourd (University of Copenhagen) & Nancy Um (Binghamton University)

Recently, scholars have been committed to studying exchanges, particularly commercial ones, across and around the rims of the Red Sea. While these connections have involved Yemen and the Horn of Africa centrally, they have rarely penetrated beyond the scope of the coasts. In this special volume, scholars consider the long history of interfaces between Yemen and Ethiopia, thus moving into the landed interior. These papers explore linguistic, diplomatic, commercial, and technological exchanges and provide evidence, albeit sometimes scanty, for movements and associations that extend from mountain to mountain, rather than simply from coast to coast. The authors rely upon an array of diverse sources, including historical chronicles and glossaries, firsthand interviews, newspapers, letters from private archives, and material culture. This special issue will be published in three installments.
