Mediterranean Passages from Delos to Derrida

Book

Through 100 texts and 30 images, _Mediterranean Passages_ advocates for a re-reading of the sea as a contact zone and a space of encounter and conversion that tempers the dominance of the nation-state. The volume argues for a transcultural and networked approach to the understanding of religious and secular communities that are often presented monolithically and as being mutually exclusive. The primary sources assembled here cover three millenia, and the conceptual framework employed by editors cooke, Göknar, and Parker is informed by the works of Braudel, Goitein, Abu Lafia, Horden & Purcell, Braudel, and others.
