Spring School Mediterranean History
28 - 30 March 2023
The Mediterranean is a contact zone of Africa, Asia and Europe that was closely intertwined long before modern globalization: a ‘liquid continent’ where borders have constantly shifted since ancient times. Today the region is in the focus due to multiple crises and conflicts. Many of these current problems have a deep history.
The Spring School will shed light on them in a longue durée perspective. Together with students from different countries from Europe and the Mediterranean distinguished scholars and experts from all periods of Mediterranean history will highlight crucial topics such as power, violence and representation, social inequality, religion and mobility across the ages. Concise lectures and intensive group work with sources will be combined to provide an understanding of epoch-spanning features and epoch-specific problems of the region that are also relevant to its present and future. Participants will receive a reader in advance.
For students from other universities, both domestic and international, travel and accommodation costs can partly be reimbursed.
