Overview

The CU Mediterranean Studies Group is open to interested faculty and graduate students from Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences programs at CU Boulder and neighboring institutions. Its aim is to develop Mediterranean Studies at CU Boulder and promote interdisciplinary collaboration and discussion among the broadest possible spectrum, with a view to encouraging research and teaching in the emerging field of Mediterranean Studies. We seek to explore categories of historical and cultural analysis that present alternatives to established national, “civilizational” and continental paradigms and emphasize conflict, exchange and interaction among diverse ethnic, religious and cultural collectives as a force behind innovation and historical development in a wide range of human endeavors. Through the Mediterranean, we seek to interrogate, assess and revise established heuristic categories and the teleological narratives that have emerged out of post-Enlightenment northern European scholarship and that have exercised an effective monopoly on our conception of Modernity and its emergence, and on the nature of cultural identity in general. Our focus is centered on but not limited to the Mediterranean region; scholars working on comparable problems in other regions and other aspects of “Oceanic Studies” are most welcome.

The group focuses particularly on questions relating to ethno-religious and ethno-culture identity and its construction, inter-communal relations, cross-cultural exchange, innovation and artistic production, movement and migration, the development and expression of hegemonic power and of empire, the role of economics and commerce in these processes. Although the period from late Antiquity to the Early Modern is emphasized, we engage with these themes through the whole of Mediterranean history, from the Neolithic to the Present.

The CU Mediterranean Studies Group collaborates with the University of California Mediterranean Studies Research Project through the Mediterranean Seminar (www.mediterraneanseminar.org).

We are welcome proposals and suggestions from CU faculty and graduate students for reading group sessions, seminars or works-in-progress workshops both for the present academic year and future.
