  • The Zeitschrift für Mittelmeerstudien (ZfM) is online
    After intensive preparation, the Journal of Mediterranean Studies (ZfM) is now online! ZfM is interdisciplinary, open access, trilingual, and also aimed at young scholars. The journal will publish research from the humanities as well as the cultural and social sciences covering all historical periods and aspects of the Mediterranean. The phenomena, events and processes of the region will be considered comparatively and in a transregional context. The journal's languages of publication will be English, French and German.
    For more information on the Journal of Mediterranean Studies (ZfM), please refer here.
    Journal of Mediterranean Studies (ZfM) Vol. 1 (2021) can be viewed here.
