Mediterranean Networks: Connecting People, Ideas and Cultures Across Time


On March 4, Professor miriam cooke, Braxton Craven Professor of Arab Cultures at Duke University, and Director of the Duke University Middle East Studies Center, delivered a lecture entitled "Mediterranean Networks: Connecting People, Ideas and Cultures Across Time." Focusing on the transcultural networks of exchanges, borrowings and appropriations that have long linked the Mediterranean's diverse communities, cultures, and histories, cooke examined the ways in which these networks have constructed Medizen subjectivities. This lecture is part of the European Union Center's Jean Monnet Lecture Series. A complete video of the lecture is available below.
