Copyright: ZMSThe Centre for Mediterranean Studies is the first scientific institution in Germany dedicated to doing cross-epochal humanistic and social-scientific research on this complex contact zone between Africa, Asia and Europe. The research work of the employees and members of the Centre focuses on approaches from the perspective of the humanities, cultural science and social science, which are supplemented by perspectives from geography, natural science and political science.
The research centre takes an innovative, comprehensive look at the Mediterranean and the dynamics of the region; it not only contributes to establishing Mediterranean Studies in Germany but also to advancing Area Studies in general.
