Cultural Exchanges in the Eastern Mediterranean: Asia Minor, Cyprus and Egypt
The movement of people and objects has always stood at the heart of attempts to understand the course and processes of human history. The history of the Mediterranean is particularly abundant when it comes to issues of migration, colonisation, and trade, initiating thus archaeological, historical, linguistic and cultural discussions.
This collection highlights the richness and depth of the multifaceted cultural exchanges of the region and focuses on underrepresented aspects of cultural exchanges in the Mediterranean, with Cyprus having a central role as a crossroads. It responds to the challenge of linking the study of everyday life at the micro-level to macro-scale narratives based on trans-regional engagement.
