Mediterranean Studies

The Mediterranean Studies at Stanford University provides a forum to explore the interplay between Mediterranean societies, cultures, and communities from the Middle Ages to the present. Affiliated faculty teach and conduct research on all aspects of co-existence and conflict that have marked these encounters in the empires, port cities, nation-states, and transregional/transnational contexts of the Levant, Anatolia, the Balkans, Southern Europe, and North Africa. They also investigate the multiple relations of the Mediterranean with other regions and areas of the world. Their work engages with pressing social, economic, religious and cultural issues.
