About Anne F. Broadbridge

Professor Broadbridge’s book, Kingship and Ideology in the Islamic and Mongol Worlds, was published by Cambridge University Press in April 2009. It examines the ideas of kingship that were exchanged through diplomacy between the Mamluk sultans of Egypt and Syria on the one hand, and their Mongol and Turkic counterparts in the Near East, Central Asia and Southern Russia on the other. Her research interests include the Mamluk Sultanate (1250-1517), the Mongol Empire, the Turkic warlord Temür / Tamerlane, and the Ottoman Empire. She has published articles on academic rivalry and patronage in Mamluk Egypt (1998), Mamluk legitimacy and the Mongols (2001), the influence of the North African scholar Ibn Khaldun on historical writing among the Mamluks and the Ottomans (2003), monarchy in the Islamic world (2004), apostasy trials in Egypt and Syria (2006), and diplomatic conventions in Egypt (2007). Professor Broadbridge has held fellowships from the Fulbright Commission (Fulbright-Hays), the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) and the Dolores Zohrab Liebmann Foundation. In 2004 Professor Broadbridge received an Outstanding Teacher Award from the College of Humanities and Fine Arts and a Lilly Teaching Fellowship from the UMass Center for Teaching. Her courses are Middle East History I, Mongol and Turkic Empires, The Crusades, The Ottoman Empire, and Islamic Movements in History.
