The Mediterranean, Criss-Crossed and Constructed

This conference offers a new kind of  historical anthropology of the Mediterranean, one that illustrates how the sea has been recreated through the interaction between cross-boundary practices and official region-making processes.  We aim to provide a forum for leading international scholars in the fields of anthropology, history, and literature of the Mediterranean to discuss recent developments in this emerging field.  To do so in the most rigorous and debate-facilitating manner, the conference is structured around individual and comparable concrete cases—periods and places around which our interdisciplinary discussion of the Mediterranean and its place could develop.
