Within the newly thriving field of ancient Greek and Roman performance and dance studies, The Anatomy of Dance Discourse offers a fresh and original perspective on ancient perceptions of dance. Focusing on the second century CE, it provides an overview of the dance discourse of this period and explores the conceptualization of dance across an array of different texts, from Plutarch and Lucian of Samosata, to the apocryphal Acts of John, Longus, and Apuleius. The volume is divided into two Parts: while the second Part discusses ekphraseis of dance performance in prose and poetry of the Roman imperial period, the first delves more deeply into an examination of how both philosophical and literary treatments of dance interacted with other areas of cultural expression, whether language and poetry, rhetoric and art, or philosophy and religion. Its distinctive contribution lies in this juxtaposition of ancient theorizations of dance and philosophical analyses of the medium with literary depictions of dance scenes and performances, and it attends not only to the highly encoded genre of pantomime, which dominated the stage in the Roman empire, but also to acrobatic, non-representational dances. This twofold nature of dance sparked highly sophisticated reflections on the relationship between dance and meaning in the ancient world, and the volume defends the novel claim that in the imperial period it became more and more palpable that dance, unlike painting or sculpture, could be representational or not: a performance of nothing but itself. It argues that dance was understood as a practice in which human beings, whether as dancers or spectators, are confronted with the irreducible reality of their own physical existence, which is constantly changing, and that its way to cognition and action is physical experience.

Although the history of engagement between social science and ancient Greek history is a long one, recent developments in economics, political science and sociology have opened fresh opportunities for fruitful interdisciplinary scholarship. The essays collected here demonstrate the potential of theories and methods drawn from the social sciences to shed new light on facets of Greek economic, political, and cultural history. And, conversely, they show that Greece may serve as an "out of sample" test for theories about institutions, organizations, associations, social thought, and social behavior that were formulated in reference to the contemporary world.

In Brill's Companion to Military Defeat in Ancient Mediterranean Society, Jessica H. Clark and Brian Turner lead a re-examination of how Near Eastern, Greek, and Roman societies addressed - or failed to address - their military defeats and casualties of war. Original case studies illuminate not only how political and military leaders managed the political and strategic consequences of military defeats, but also the challenges facing defeated soldiers, citizens, and other classes, who were left to negotiate the meaning of defeat for themselves and their societies. By focusing on the connections between war and society, history and memory, the chapters collected in this volume contribute to our understanding of the ubiquity and significance of war losses in the ancient world.

Traversed by masses of migrants and wracked by environmental and economic change, the Mediterranean has come to connote crisis. In this context, Critically Mediterranean asks how the theories and methodologies of Mediterranean studies may be brought to bear upon the modern and contemporary periods. Contributors explore how the Mediterranean informs philosophy, phenomenology, the poetics of time and space, and literary theory. Ranging from some of the earliest twentieth-century material on the Mediterranean to Edmond Amran El Maleh, Christoforos Savva, Orhan Pamuk, and Etel Adnan, the essays ask how modern and contemporary Mediterraneans may be deployed in political, cultural, artistic, and literary practice. The critical Mediterranean that emerges is plural and performative-a medium through which subjects may negotiate imagined relations with the world around them. Vibrant and deeply interdisciplinary, Critically Mediterranean offers timely interventions for a sea in crisis.

The early modern Mediterranean was an area where many different rich cultural traditions came in contact with each other, and were often forced to co-exist, frequently learning to reap the benefits of co-operation. Orthodox, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews, and their interactions all contributed significantly to the cultural development of modern Europe. The aim of this volume is to address, explore, re-examine and re-interpret one specific aspect of this cross-cultural interaction in the Mediterranean - that between the Byzantine East and the (mainly Italian) West. The investigation of this interaction has become increasingly popular in the past few decades, not least due to the relevance it has for cultural exchanges in our present-day society. The starting point is provided by the fall of Constantinople to the troops of the Fourth Crusade in 1204. In the aftermath of the fall, a number of Byzantine territories came under prolonged Latin occupation, an occupation that forced Greeks and Latins to adapt their life socially and religiously to the new status quo. Venetian Crete developed one of the most fertile `bi-cultural' societies, which evolved over 458 years. Its fall to the Ottoman Turks in 1669 marked the end of an era and was hence chosen as the end point for the conference. By sampling case studies from the most representative areas where this interaction took place, the volume highlights the process as well as the significance of its cultural development.

"Rassemblant à la fois des données du monde grec et du monde romain, cet ouvrage entend contribuer à une meilleure analyse des circuits économiques méditerranéens, locaux et régionaux, en remettant au coeur de la réflexion les questions d'entreposage, des modes de distribution et de la spéculation. En s'intéressant aux lieux et bâtiments de stockage, cette enquête est en même temps une étude des circuits et des flux, qui interroge à nouveaux frais la documentation écrite et archéologique, à travers plusieurs exemples montrant le pragmatisme et la plurifonctionnalité des bâtiments, les articulations entre le rôle de l'État et l'action des particuliers, la complexité des circuits."--Back cover.

  • Une Méditerranée de rencontres et d'échanges -- D'une rive à l'autre, des valeurs partagées -- Une Méditerranée noire, celle des conflits et de la haine -- Le système méditerranéen, un système de différences complémentaires -- De la coexistence bienveillante à l'affrontement sanglant.
"Comment penser la Méditerranée ? Un monde de parfums, de couleurs, d'échanges et de rencontres ? Un ensemble de sociétés qui présentent un air de famille ? Mais c'est aussi un univers de conflits et de haine. Comment passe-t-on de la coexistence bienveillante à l'affrontement sanglant ? Chaque groupe se définit ici dans un jeu de miroirs avec ses voisins. Et ce sont ce jeu et ces différences qui permettent de parler d'un "monde méditerranéen". Aussi, rappeler les pratiques de mixité, les épisodes heureux de coexistence, les valeurs partagées d'une rive à l'autre, ne doit pas masquer la vigueur des antagonismes, car les deux forment un tout insécable. Une voie pour les adoucir, peut-être les surmonter, est de prendre conscience de leur relativité. Ce voyage en Méditerranée, dans l'espace et dans le temps, invite à ce pas de côté..."--Page 4 of cover.

"La mer et le désert, l'île et l'oasis, des objets qui entrent a priori assez rarement en relation mutuelle. Pourtant, depuis Hérodote, qui décrit les oasis du désert Libyque comme des "îles des Bienheureux", une connivence a souvent été entrevue entre ces deux entités, et le parallèle s'est prolongé jusqu'aux époques contemporaines. Ce volume rassemble les contributions de spécialistes de toutes les périodes historiques et de disciplines diverses, autour d'un rapprochement à la fois stimulant et porteur d'interrogations. Dans la continuité de l'ouvrage Mer et montagne dans la culture européenne, dirigé par A. Cabantous, J.-L. Chappey, N. Richard et F. Walter et paru aux PUR en 2011, les auteurs mettent en regard mer et désert en s'interrogeant tout d'abord sur le vécu de ces espaces : écrivains et voyageurs ont souvent comparé traversées au long cours et méharées, s'essayant parfois à une théorisation de ce rapprochement. Mais quelle est la portée heuristique d'une telle démarche ? Que peut-elle nous enseigner sur les espaces comparés ? Face à l'indétermination qui caractérise ces aires de marge, on identifie diverses tentatives technologiques et cartographiques, souvent convergentes, de réduire et traverser ces zones grises. En effet, en dépit de leur marginalité, ces espaces sont tissés de réseaux, maillés de ports insulaires ou caravaniers, dans ce qu'on a pu appeler, dans le cadre méditerranéen, la "connectivité" (Horden et Purcell). Enfin, l'actualité récente rappelle leur dimension stratégique sur le plan politique et économique. La problématique de la captation par les États des réseaux structurant ces espaces et des flux économiques qui leur sont propres va de pair avec les politiques de police des mers et des déserts, contre des populations présentées comme des pirates, mais qui n'en sont souvent que d'autres usagers. L'ouvrage vise à articuler des pratiques historiographiques aussi diverses que l'archéologie, l'histoire des migrations et de l'environnement, l'histoire des sciences, la géohistoire ou l'histoire des représentations, autour d'une approche inédite de la mer et du désert, en prise avec des problématiques contemporaines."--Page 4 of cover.

The Mediterranean has always attracted the imagination of modern historians as the epicentre of great political entities, such as the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Ottomans, Venetians, and Spanish. However, it seems that the sea itself was always on the margins of historical inquiry - at least, until the publication of the famous two-volume work by F. Braudel in 1949. This collection of essays aims to offer a vertical history of war in the Mediterranean Sea, from the early Middle Ages to the early modernity, putting the emphasis on the changing face of several different aspects and contexts of war over time. Contributors are Stephen Bennett, Stathis Birtachas, Cornel Bontea, Wayne H. Bowen, Lilia Campana, Raffaele D'Amato, Elina Gugliuzzo, Nikolaos Kanellopoulos, Savvas Kyriakides, Tilemachos Lounghis, Alan V. Murray, Chrysovalantis Papadamou, Jacopo Pessina, Philip Rance, Georgios Theotokis, Iason Tzouriadis, Ian Wilson, and Aysel Yildiz.
