Marking the Mocha Trade Network: Architecture, Spatial History and the Port City in Early Modern Yemen

I am preparing a book manuscript on the seventeenth and eighteenth-century trade of the port city of Mocha in Yemen and its impact on architecture and urbanism. While most of the fieldwork in Yemen and the research in European archives has been completed, I need to spend two months in the National Archives of the Netherlands in the Hague for a final consultation of the Dutch East India Company records of the Mocha factory and one week at the Museum für Völkerkunde in Berlin to view their collection of early twentieth-century photographs of Yemeni architectural sites. I propose to finish this archival work over the summer so that I may complete my manuscript during the academic year 2004-5.
