Mr. Gourarier’s keynote "The Mediterranean: A Cradle of Civilizations Amongst Others” inaugurates the two-day colloquium “(Un)mapping the Mediterranean” (March 13-14) Zeev Gourarier (Director of Science and Collections at the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations in Marseille, France) will speak about the particular singularities of the Mediterranean world that contribute to its cultural characteristics that are unique in comparison to other areas of a similar nature and how these elements are the founding principles of the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MuCEM) Gallery of the Mediterranean. These singularities highlight the fact that, despite the lack of a political unity in the Mediterranean since the Roman Empire, there were nonetheless commonalities across agricultural, religious, and political structures.
