It seemed necessary then, I noted, ‘that the project inaugurated in Naples should seek to involve an increasing number of institutions and scholars with different linguistic and cultural backgrounds, but who are willing to explore the historical and enduring complexities of cross-cultural dynamics.’ Two years later, here we are, a community of 117 scholars from 40 nations. The Cost Action 18140 People in Motion: Entangled Histories of Displacement across the Mediterranean, or PIMo, is a four-year global research project being undertaken by scholars from the humanities and social sciences, including historians, philosophers, mathematicians, and experts from fields as diverse as [...]
