Modern Mediterranean Identities - EUST2113

Year - 2020

The Mediterranean is more than a geographical region. It is a complex set of interconnected geo-political and cultural sites and identities, between east and west, belonging both to the north and south, stretching into the hinterlands of Western and South-Eastern Europe, including the Balkans and the Black Sea, the Middle-Eastern littoral and Northern Africa along with islands such as Cyprus, Malta, Corsica and Majorca. In this unit we explore the historical, cultural and contemporary geo-political encounters around the Mediterranean, as a place of long-term occupation by indigenous peoples, as well as of migration flows and of modern-day mass tourism.
