Conflict and Cohabitation: the past and its reception in the creation of Mediterranean identities

Under the unifying theme of 'Conflict and Cohabitation', it is our aim to investigate, and develop resources for the investigation of how - at local, national and international levels - peoples, ideas, and practices have lived together in peaceful and hostile relationships; and how the multiple identities thus negotiated and given expression have led to both conflicts and accommodations that continue to affect the world in which we live. Current projects are the following.
