The Mediterranean Studies Forum encourages scholars to explore the interplay among societies, cultures, and communities around the Mediterranean Basin from the Middle Ages to the present. Its focus is on all aspects of co-existence and conflict that have marked these encounters in the empires, port cities, nation states, and transregional and transnational social, religious, cultural, and economic contexts of North Africa, the Levant, the Balkans, and Southern Europe. It is also interested in the relations of the Mediterranean with other regions and areas of the world. The central goal of the forum is to contribute to interfield and interdisciplinary dialogue among scholars of these areas through lectures, colloquia, workshops, conferences, and publications.
