The Mediterranean City: Space

Saturday 24 November 2012, University of St Andrews

The BSR is delighted to announce a workshop series on the Mediterranean City,  jointly organised with the Society for the Study of Medieval Languages and Literature.

The purpose of these workshops is to provide a venue for discussion on themes in the history of the Mediterranean City. The conscious intention is to allow a sharing of perspectives between scholars with expertise in different aspects of the civilizations bordering the ‘middle sea’.  The chronological focus moves out from the medieval millennium, creating a conversation between classicists, medievalists and early modernists.

The first of these workshops will be kindly hosted by the Institute of Medieval Studies of the University of St Andrews on 24th November 2012.

The second workshop in this series will take place at the BSR on 19 March 2013.
