The Mediterranean Seminar


As the field of Mediterranean Studies has gained academic purchase in recent decades, the Mediterranean itself has remained a portable concept, a shorthand encoding assumptions about everything from diet to romantic temperament. Scholarship interrogating these assumptions forms an increasingly abundant body of research on the particularities of the Mediterranean world throughout its history. In many studies, a Mediterranean analytical framework is treated as a starting point, or a set of tropes and clichés to be interrogated in granular detail. This conference seeks to explore the life of the Mediterranean itself as a productive discourse.
