The Medieval Mediterranean: Local and Global Perspectives 2

26th January @ 18:00 - 19:00

Online

Overview

The Medieval Mediterranean: Local and Global Perspectives is a new seminar series from the Society for the Medieval Mediterranean, in collaboration with the Woolf Institute, CSIC IMF, University of Liege and the Medieval Studies Research Group at the University of Lincoln
It provides a forum for discussion and interdisciplinary debate on premodern Mediterranean spaces, people and ideas from local and translocal perspectives. As a fluid space, the Mediterranean is conceptualised and studied as a frontier, a migration route and a channel of contact and communication between and across diverse socio-political, economic, religious and cultural contexts. Examining the Mediterranean as both the epicentre and a receiver of Eastern and Western traditions and influences enhances dialogue across disciplines, while shedding new light on the complex dynamics that framed, regulated and shaped the contours of its real and imagined landscape.

At the second webinar, Dr Roberta Morosini (UCLA) will talk about her new book on the Medieval Mediterranean as a literary space. This webinar will be held on Tuesday 26 January 2021 at 6pm.
