An American Mediterranean? Braudel’s legacy and new directions over a decade of developments in Mediterranean Studies

Over the past decade, Mediterranean Studies has become increasingly popular in US academic institutions, with the formation of dedicated societies, specialized journals, textbooks, courses of study, and book series. Many of these approaches look back to Fernand Braudel’s influential conception of the Mediterranean as a unified space while also seeking to connect to global historical patterns. This talk examines trends in this scholarship, highlighting some of the main themes in recent work and placing it in national and international context.
