Abstract: Locating the Mediterranean brings together ethnographic examinations of processes that make locations and render them meaningful. In doing so, it stimulates debates on the interplay between location and region-making in anthropology and history. With deeply empirical contributions, the volume illustrates how historical, legal, religious, economic, political, and social connections and separations shape the experience of being located in the geographical space commonly known as the Mediterranean region. Individual contributions, which draw upon research in Melilla, Lampedusa, Istanbul, Nafpaktos/Lepanto, Tunisia, Beirut, Marseille, and elsewhere, articulate location through the overlapping and incorporation of multiple social and historical processes. The volume and its individual chapters challenge strict geopolitical renderings of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa and suggest how the ‘Mediterranean’ can function as a meaningful anthropological and historical category if the notion of ‘location’ is reinvigorated and conceptualised anew.
