Topographies de « minorités » : Notes sur Livourne, Marseille et Tunis au XVIIe siècle

Abstract : This essay aims at describing different forms of territorialization and visibility of “foreigners” and “minorities” in three ports tightly linked by trade in XVIIth century Mediterranean Sea: Livorno, Tunis and Marseilles. It firstly focuses on the spaces of the “nations”, scarcely apparent in Early modern Marseilles, but very visible in Tunis and Livorno in the form of “districts” or closed spaces (funduqs). It then concentrates on slaves and galley-slaves prisons in those cities, and on differences and similarities between Livorno’s and Tunis’ Jewish districts. By using urban morphological analysis, one's intention is to prove its usefulness for the comprehension of the history of socio-legal processes of inclusion and exclusion of foreigners and minorities in Early-Modern cities.
