Centre for Mediterranean Studies:
Connecting histories, literatures and politics
The Centre for Mediterranean Studies promotes interdisciplinary teaching and research into the history, culture and people of the Mediterranean.
Bringing together academics from a wide range of disciplines, the Centre provides an exciting place to carry out research and explore new ideas. We hold regular research seminars and organise expeditions to sites across the Mediterranean. We have hosted conferences on topics as diverse as naval medicine, migration, dowries, poverty, cultural aspects of eating, and interaction between the Maghreb and Britain. These have been held in Exeter, Malta, Tunisia, Spain and Italy.
Located within the Department of Classics & Ancient History, the Centre has strong links with other departments and research centres within the University, especially the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies.The Centre was established by historian Anne Williams in 1992. Past directors have included John Wilkins and Mohamed-Salah Omri.
