Abstract

The concept of the ‘contact zone’, first articulated by Mary Louise Pratt, has not been extensively used in early modern literary studies. This essay aims to test if the framework it provides can profitably cast a light on the representation of the multicultural life in Mediterranean cities as staged in early modern English ‘Turk’ plays.
