The Mediterranean has been a place of connectivity and mobility of people throughout all the ages. However, during economic crisis and migration period, this seascape has also been the lieu of political conflicts and geographical limitations. As contemporary facts highlight, mobility (and its related connectivity) has been questioned by the recent crisis of Europe together with the geopolitical instability of those countries facing the Mediterranean. In order to retrieve a sense of resilience, we as archaeologists, have to contribute through an analysis of historical migration processes, mobility of goods and interconnectivity of social cultures.
This session aims to collect a series of reflections about the Mediterranean as a peculiar space of interactions in terms of politics, economies and social communities. Contributions focusing on the connectivity and mobility across the Iron Age to late Medieval Mediterranean are welcome. Particularly, we welcome papers inherent to these topics: i) Historical migration processes; ii) Material cross-cultural interaction; iii) Material and social integration in the Mediterranean; iv) Trans-maritime and cabotage movements; v) Resilient approaches to connectivity; vi) Interconnectivity among rivers, sea and islands; vii) Ecological changes in relationship with mobility across the Mediterranean.
It is anticipated that the maximum number of accepted papers will be 14.
