Few world regions concentrate in themselves so many of today’s most pressing geopolitical issues as the Mediterranean. Long studied in a fragmented way, the Mediterranean is now being reinterpreted as a space of connections, exchanges, and contacts made possible by the sea, and as the stage for the possible emergence of new collective identities. In the winter semester of 2011, the Center for European Studies-European Union Center will hold a series of events highlighting the changing political and cultural landscape taking shape along the Mediterranean’s shores. This series will involve the Mediterranean Topographies Interdisciplinary Workshop, the Maps division of Hatcher Graduate Library exhibitions on the Mediterranean, and a film series.
Please check the CES-EUC website for a complete list of events in this series and the events calendar for later additions, time changes or cancellations. Find us on: iTunesU “The Conversations on Europe at U-M” album; YouTube, and Facebook. CES-EUC is a European Commission-supported European Union Center of Excellence.
