“MediterráneoS 2012”: International Conference of Junior Researchers in Mediterranean and Near Eastern Languages and Cultures
Centro de Ciencias Humanas y Sociales, CSIC (Madrid, Spain)
The Conference will be held in November 22-23, 2012.
The “MediterráneoS” International Conferences are organized by Junior Researchers members of the Institute of Languages and Cultures of the Mediterranean and the Near East (CCHS – CSIC). Our Institute gathers diverse projects devoted to the study of various Mediterranean languages and cultures, considering its Greco-Latin, Jewish, Arabic, and Near Eastern origins and influences.
The first "MediterráneoS" International Conference was held in 2010 with a great scope of participation. As in the first encounter, the 2nd edition aims to create a multidisciplinary framework for discussion and reflection focusing on the study of written or oral corpora produced in the areas bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. Our goal is, therefore, to highlight the importance of the various methodological approaches applied to research in the different fields of Humanities.
