The Mediterranean Sea is at the center of a wide range of manifold sociocultural and linguistic microcosms that have been dynamically evolving, the ocean being the platform where any kind of contact, connection and confrontation has taken place. Our aim is to provide a research basis for innovative strategies to address the current dimensions of inequity in the Mediterranean focusing on research in the spheres of urban vs. rural social realities, such as linguistic and cultural expressions, unequal laws for women in religiously based/influenced legal systems, and people moving – migration and intercultural contact as a timeless phenomenon.
Each of the three workshops and the various lectures will give a unique perspective and theoretical approach to the topic from disciplines, such as: Cultural Anthropology, Gender Studies, Law, Literature, Linguistics, History, Arabic and Islamic studies and many more. Regular plenary discussions and a round table event provide a versatile basis for reciprocal cross-disciplinary enrichment and a broadening of knowledge horizons.
The students can present or discuss a current project/thesis related the topic.
The programme will be available soon
