· Session 9 (26 June 2024, 18h CET) : "Surveying and documentation of the archaeological city of Barca (Al-Marj)" by Naser Alharari (Department of Antiquities, Benghazi, Libya)

Despite being well-known for the Greek and Roman era, Libya remains rather unknown for the tenth centuries of the Islamic era, that began with the Islamic conquest of the 1st/7th century and ended with the progressive establishment of the Ottoman rule in the 10th/16th century. Thus, this webinar aims at reactivating the academic interest toward this space, that can be conceptualized as a crossroad within the global Islamic world, connecting the Maghrib with the Mashriq, the Mediterranean Sea and Saharan Africa. Following the last conference cycle (2022-2023), in 2023-2024 we will continue to explore the sources available to the historians to write, reshape and reconsider the history of medieval Libya. A special emphasis will be put on new corpuses, especially material documentation.

Organization committee: Hafed Abdouli (LERIC, University of Sfax, Tunisia) ; Inas Mohamed Ali Bubtana(Archaeology department, University of Benghazi, Libya) ; Sébastien Garnier (University of Paris-1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, France) ; Aurélien Montel (University of Toulouse-2, France)
