"Port Saʿīd, 1859-1869 : Harboring Dreams in an Egyptian and Mediterranean Port-City" - Lucia Carminati

The Egyptian and Mediterranean city of Port Saʿīd, founded in 1859, quickly became a stop-over in the global trajectories of goods and of laborers, migrants, and travelers. By 1869, when the Suez Canal was officially inaugurated, the city could already count 10,000 inhabitants. Thanks to Egyptian, British, French, Italian, and Maltese archival sources of various kinds, I analyzed the ways in which the desert was re-imagined, a “new” city was founded, and different groups dwelled in the urban space. Migration, from which the city stemmed and thrived, constantly fuelled such diversity. Hence, the influx of migrants got to be tightly connected to the ways the urban space was inhabited, contested, and appropriated. In my ongoing research, I attempt to connect the social hierarchy that came to be in Port Saʿīd to the original utopian desires of its masterminds.And I aim to show how, in the second half of the 19th century, mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion were regulating the urban space in a Middle Eastern port-city.
