Whether the Mediterranean facilitates cultural and ethnic interplay, or whether we view it as a barrier that separates civilisations and traditions, a close study of Mediterranean economic exchange can be revealing. The history of transportation and commercial activities tells stories of man and culture; the nature of individuals and societies; problems inherent in shipping routes, and currencies. Commercial activity, for the purpose of this conference, is the method of mapping, reading and comprehending the Mediterranean world, and dialogue with societies beyond its internal shores.
We hope that our rubric of 'Mediterranean Worlds' is broad enough to
encompass the work of scholars researching across the whole range of aspects of the Mediterranean literature, while at the same time highlighting this year's special topic of 'commerce, capital and trade routes'.
We welcome the submission of suggested panels or papers that broadly address the above themes.
