The Mediterranean Seminar (www.mediterraneanseminar.org) and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University are seeking proposals for papers to be workshopped at the 2016 Winter Workshop of the Mediterranean Seminar to be held on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge MA, on Friday, 4 March as part of a three-day event running from Thursday, 3 March to Saturday, 5 March 2016.
We invite abstracts for workshop papers on the topic ““Subterfuge and Deception in the Pre-Modern Mediterranean,” construed either literally or figuratively. We seek papers in any relevant discipline, especially comparative or interdisciplinary work that uses the Mediterranean as a frame of analysis. All North American-based scholars (or foreign scholars who will be in the US at this time) working on relevant material are encouraged to apply. The Center for Middle Eastern Studies will generously cover travel and lodging expenses for presenters.
A separate call for workshop registration will be sent out on or about December 7. Workshop presenters and attendees are encouraged to attend both events.
