Mare Nostrum: Security from the Pillars of Hercules to the Euphrates, 1900 to the present

 

Progenitor of both Western and Middle Eastern civilization, the Mediterranean basin has constituted a vital locus linking Europe, Africa, and Asia for millennia and has remained an important center of strategic concerns and interaction.  Consequently, this conference will analyze the manner in which nations have endeavored to promote their perceived security interests, broadly defined, since 1900 in the region extending from the western terminus of the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates Valley.  The Departments of History and International Studies invite practitioners and scholars of various disciplines to send a 300-word proposal and one-page CV for individual papers, roundtables, or panels for a conference to be held at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York, on October 3-4,  2019. Graduate students and individuals at the post-graduate/professional level should feel free to apply. The submission deadline is August 1, 2019. Please address all correspondence to “Conference Committee Organizers” at medconf@sjfc.edu.
