Focus and Scope

Scripta Mediterranea aims to contribute to the resurgence in the interest in the Mediterranean – evident in new courses, programs, conferences, and institutional initiatives in North American institutions and around the world. Scripta Mediterranea will serve as a forum for reflection on the history, presence and future of Mediterranean Studies and their role in a globalized academic world. The focus of the Journal is the Mediterranean World over a broad chronological period, from Antiquity to the present. We look for interdisciplinary approaches to the history and culture of the Mediterranean world and we are especially keen to publish articles that contribute to a critical understanding of Mediterranean cultures and histories. We do not invite articles that are simply about ‘something Mediterranean’ but articles that discuss critically and contribute constructively to the field of Mediterranean Studies and especially reflect on the concept of the Mediterranean itself. Such contributions will distinguish our Journal from similar ones in the field and advance conversation across various fields and disciplines. We are particularly interested in histories of the sea rather than the lands around it – the countries that are often called Mediterranean – and especially interested in the people who crossed the sea as travellers, traders or pilgrims, and lived by its shores in ports and islands. Histories of colonialism and articles on the post-colonial Mediterranean are also welcome.
