The ???Ocean Crossings??? group, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, announces the call for papers for the Graduate Student Colloquium

(Un)mapping the Mediterranean

March 13-14, 2015

Keynote Speaker:

Zeev Gourarier

Director of Science and Collections

Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations

Marseille, France

The Mediterranean has always been a space marked by fluidic and nomadic networks formed by transnational fluxes of people, goods and ideas. Mapping seems to be the preliminary condition for crossing to happen - allowing subjects to position themselves and to move within space. However, even the act of crossing can become a destabilizing moment through the breaking down of preconceived spatial and cultural coordinates. In this perspective, the Mediterranean allows the possibility to unsettle rather than to trace borders, thus opening up the space for new connections that transcend existing social, cultural, or political frameworks.

For more information, please refer to the call for papers attached.

Inquiries and abstract may be directed to Jessica Sciubba and Corey Flack at illinoisoceancrossings at gmail.com<mailto:illinoisoceancrossings at gmail.com>. Abstracts must be received no later than December 23, 2014.
