Those involved in or following our Mediterranean Project might find the following interesting:
As part of the annual Mediterranean Meeting to be held in Mersin, Turkey (March 20-23, 2013) Daniel Monterescu and I are coordinating a workshop on the links between violence, pluralism, urbanism and the 2011 uprisings in the Middle East, North Africa and Southern Europe.
Violence of Pluralism: Urban Transformations and New Political Subjectivities in the Rebellious Mediterranean
We seek empirical and theoretical papers addressing these processes from young and established scholars in the social sciences and humanities. Contemporary and historical perspectives are both welcome.
The organizers will provide partial funding for travel expenses of select participants.
The deadline for abstract submission is September 15. Decisions will be made my early October. Final papers are due by February 15.
