New Monograph Series Announcement

Cultures of Reading in the Ancient Mediterranean

 Oxford University Press

The “Cultures of Reading in the Ancient Mediterranean” monograph series is focused both narrowly and broadly.  In terms of topic, it will narrowly focus upon ancient book cultures, from (generally) sociological perspectives and media criticism.  In terms of chronology and academic disciplines, it will broadly focus upon cultures from the historical era of ancient Greece up through late antiquity and dwell at the intersection of Classics, papyrology, Jewish Studies, early Christian studies, and ancient media culture. In light of its interdisciplinary focus, however, it will also include the capacity to include studies on other periods and areas of study (such as the ancient Near East or early Islam) that are central to the theme of the series.

The series will feature single-author and multi-author monographs of typically 60,000 to 80,000 words.  We envision a limited program of ten or twelve studies for the monograph series that will be published over the next ten years.  The geographical focus is on the cultures around the Mediterranean basin and the chronological focus will range from the Greek archaic period through late antiquity.  With a topical focus on ancient book and media culture, this series will ride a surge in interest in these topics across various disciplines in the Humanities.  Building upon works in the 1980s and 1990s in ancient literacy (William Harris, Rosalind Thomas) and sociological approaches to textual cultures (Brian Stock, Brian Street, Ruth Finnegan), among others, for the past two decades scholars across Classical Studies, Jewish Studies, and early Christian studies in particular have carved out an interdisciplinary and overlapping discourse related to ancient book cultures.  It is our intention that “Cultures of Reading in the Ancient Mediterranean” be the premier publication venue for the next wave of studies in this productive interdisciplinary space.

Appel à article — the Medieval Global

Announcing The Medieval Globe. Connectivity~Communication~Exchange, a  new biannual academic journal. The Medieval Globe (TMG) is a peer-reviewed journal to be launched in 2014, published in both print and digital formats.  It is based at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and sponsored by CARMEN, the Worldwide Medieval Network.  It is dedicated to exploring the modes of communication, materials of exchange, and myriad interconnections among regions, communities, and individuals in an era central to human history.

The Medieval Globe promotes scholarship in three related areas of study:

  • the direct and indirect means by which peoples, goods, and ideas came into contact,
  • the deep roots of global developments,
  • the ways in which perceptions of “the medieval” have been (and are) constructed around the world.

Contributions to a global understanding of the medieval period need not encompass the globe in any territorial sense. The Medieval Globe advances a new theory and praxis of medieval studies by bringing into view phenomena that have been rendered practically or conceptually invisible by anachronistic boundaries, categories, and expectations: these include networks, communities, bodies of knowledge, forms of movement, varieties of interaction, and identities. It invites submissions that analyze actual or potential connections, trace trajectories and currents, address topics of broad interest, or pioneer portable methodologies.

catalogue en ligne — Travelogues

Travelogues website ( was created within the broader project of Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation to promote Greek culture, and especially Greek literature, on a national and international level. This website aims to make known the graphic materials found in travel accounts of journeys to Greece and the eastern Mediterranean from the 15th century onwards, and thus contribute both to students’ education and scientific research. An important part of the editions that constituted the data base of the website belongs to the Historical Library of the Foundation, currently under construction.

Travelogues will periodically be updated with material from major libraries in Greece, such as Gennadius Library and Benaki Museum Library. This material, already in process, spans the time from the 15th to the early 20th century. Of approximately 4500 images, 560 have already been incorporated in the website’s collections. In the same sense, the bibliography shall be updated with the most recent research contributions. User feedback will be taken into consideration and the pertinent modifications will get reflected.
