Corinne Mühlemann's current research project All the Goods of the Earth. Making and Marketing in the pre-Mongol Islamic world focuses on the processes of making three kinds of artifacts: textiles, ceramics and metalwork within the premodern Islamic marketplaces. She analyzes and compares written Islamic legal sources like the Ḥisba-manuals together with extant artifacts. Her research will contribute to an understanding of how pre-Mongol marketplaces and their artisan-craftsmen were organised and how knowledge and information concerning (loom) technology, patterns and their notation systems were transferred between Baghdad and al-Andalus.
