Mediterranean Perspectives

Series Editors: Catlos, Brian, Kinoshita, Sharon

As a region whose history of connectivity can be documented
over at least two and a half millennia, the Mediterranean has in recent years
become the focus of innovative scholarship in a number of disciplines. In
shifting focus away from histories of the origins and developments of phenomena
predefined by national or religious borders, Mediterranean Studies opens vistas
onto histories of contact, circulation and exchange in all their complexity
while encouraging the reconceptualization of inter- and intra-disciplinary
scholarship, making it one of the most exciting and dynamic fields in the
humanities. Mediterranean Perspectives interprets the Mediterranean in the
widest sense: the sea and the lands around it, as well as the European, Asian
and African hinterlands connected to it by networks of culture, trade,
politics, and religion. This series publishes monographs and edited collections
that explore these new fields, from the span of Late Antiquity through Early
Modernity to the contemporary.
