Abstract of the lecture
Salme was an Omani princess who was born in 1844 in Zanzibar, a small coral island in the Indian Ocean near the East African coast. She converted to Christianity from Islam after eloping with a German youth to Hamburg. Four years later, she lost her husband in a horse tram car accident. To raise her three small children, she tried to obtain her lawful inheritance from her brother, the Sultan of Zanzibar. In this process, she became involved in the imperial politics of Germany, Britain, and Oman. Disappointed and tired of the male-dominated sphere of influence, she decided to exile herself to Beirut, where she lived from 1892 to 1914. She died in 1924 at the age of 79 in Jena. In this lecture, I will discuss the gender and genderstructure of the Christian and Islamic Empires from the viewpoint of Salme, who lived between these two worlds.
