ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS

Discussion about Mediterranean anthropology.

Dear H-SAE members,

Those of you interested in anthropology of the Mediterranean during the Medieval may wish to start a discussion.

Recently the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e. the ancestor to the modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.

New Issue of Focaal: Journal of Global and Historical Anthropology - The Political in/of Europe

Dear Colleague,

This themed issue of Focaal first introduces the vantage points of critical scholarship that distinguishes itself from the mainstream, and people and places that are geopolitically in Europe, but “not quite” European if viewed in relation to “Europe” as a normative trope. It follows with topics ranging from deindustrialized Latvian countryside to the militarization of US social science in such initiatives as Project Camelot.
