The Mediterranean Platform was founded in 2019 to bring together and make different cultural Mediterranean research approaches visible at the University of Konstanz. Arising from a joint initiative of historians and literary scholars, it discusses current research projects and new perspectives on Mediterranean Studies. At the same time, the platform serves to network on-going and initiate future research projects with a Mediterranean focus. Since 2020 it has been supported by the Committee on Research (AFF) of the University of Konstanz. The Platform organizes a regular research colloquium every semester in German and/or English, in which interested persons (pre- and postgraduates as well as scholars) can participate online or in person. 

The colloquium is held on Wednesdays from 15:15 bis 16:45 or on Tuesdays from 17:00 to 18:30 in Room G 308. For the digital sessions, please contact Jovo Miladinović ( in order to get the link.
