Mediterranean Rivers in Global Perspectives

Recent debates on globalization and the spatial turn have increased the interest into the study of transnational regions and human-nature relationships. In this context, the Mediterranean is often regarded as a natural given. However, the global history has also changed and modified the idea of well-defined areas and cultures. Therefore the conference will regard the borders of the Mediterranean as flexible and situate the region within a global context. In order to further develop Mediterranean studies we propose an interdisciplinary and cross-epochal perspective, focusing on Mediterranean rivers and their People.
