The conference addresses the idea of crossing the Mediterranean between the 15th and 21ste centuries, with a thematic focus on Migration and Trafficking; Conflict, Slavery and Exploitation; Culture and Religion; Identities; Memory and Heritage. Senior and junior scholars from Africa, Eurasia and Europe can send their proposals until 20 December 2022. More information about the conference and the criteria for submission can be found in the call.

The summer school provides training for young career scholars (PhD’s and Postdoctoral candidates) in the areas of developing a career in academia and translation of academic skills into a broad labour market.

The Crossings conference is part of the project People in Motion: Entangled Histories of Displacement Across the Mediterranean (1492 – 1923)
