Overview & Administration

The Mediterranean Seminar is based at the Center for Mediterranean Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and the department of Religious Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder. We sponsor a range of activities and programs related to the study (both research and teaching) of the Mediterranean as a region, with an emphasis on the Pre- and Early Modern periods. At the University of California, we are supported by the UC Office of the President and the UCSC Division of Humanities, and are administered by the Institute for Humanities Research (UCSC); we manage an inter-disciplinary research group and collaborate regularly with the departments of History and Literature, the Center for Jewish Studies, and the Classics Program. Our Mediterranean Studies Multi-Campus Research Project involves eight UC campuses and is at the center of the Mediterranean Consortium, a network of scholarly projects based in North America and Europe. At CU Boulder, our Mediterranean Studies Group is supported by an Innovative Seed Grant from the College of Arts & Sciences, and by a number of departments, programs and centers. Through our UC system-wide and external programs and publication series, we collaborate with a network of some 500 scholars across North America and the world, and regularly organize conferences, workshops, panels, and events at the University of California, in North America and in Europe. Our NEH Summer Institutes for University and College Professors (held biennially in Barcelona, Spain) have been successful and acclaimed. In 2012, we will be launching a new series of monographs and essay collections with Palgrave Macmillan.
