What does an understanding of Jewish history contribute to the
study of the Mediterranean, and what can Mediterranean studies
contribute to our knowledge of Jewish history? Jews and the
Mediterranean considers the historical potency and uniqueness of
what happens when Sephardi, Mizrahi, and Ashkenazi Jews meet in the
Mediterranean region. By focusing on the specificity of the Jewish
experience, the essays gathered in this volume emphasize human
agency and culture over the length of Mediterranean history. This
collection draws attention to what made Jewish people distinctive
and warns against facile notions of Mediterranean connectivity,
diversity, fluidity, and hybridity, presenting a new assessment of
the Jewish experience in the Mediterranean.
