12:00 pm Lecture
Race and Racism in the Mediterranean at the Beginning of the Modern Age
Sponsored by:
African Studies Program, Center for Russian East European and Eurasian Studies, European Studies Center and Global Studies Center
See Details

The University Center for International Studies now offers a Certificate in Mediterranean Studies at both the undergraduate and the graduate level. A certificate in Mediterranean studies provides Pitt students and faculty with the institutional support and organizational structure to examine issues and themes across the Mediterranean world over a broad chronological span – from Antiquity to the present. The interdisciplinary certificates offered by the European Studies Center contextualize the ideas of Mediterranean cultures past and present and examine the influence of those ideas outside of the region.

Please join us for a lecture by Dr. Emmanuel Rota, University of Illinois, on “Race and Racism in the Early Modern Period in the Mediterranean Region.”

We encourage our audience to participate in the Q&A discussion following the lecture.

A GrubHub credit will be available (with limited quantities). Please register to receive directions how to receive your credit and set up your delivery.
