Mediterranean Studies Working Group

  • 8/14/2013 | 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Location: Adams Hall, Room 202
  • Event Type: Meeting

A planning group for the Mellon Humanities Initiative project in Mediterranean Studies, the Mediterranean Studies Working Group looks at the Mediterranean as a space of complexity, studying the nations and cultures of the Mediterranean from multiple perspectives, including historical, religious, linguistic, cultural, social, political and economic aspects.

The purpose of the Working Group is twofold: practical planning and creative brainstorming.  The first day (August 14) is open to all interested faculty, and will serve as a brainstorming session and organizational meeting; on the second day, a steering group of 5-6 people (to be determined on the first day) will meet to establish some priorities for Mediterranean Studies and to develop a coherent schedule for future development.  There is a stipend and lunch is included.  If you are interested in participating, please let Barbara Weiden Boyd or Davida Gavioli know.
