The Journal of Mediterranean Studies (JMS) is an interdisciplinary journal published twice yearly since 1991. It is specifically aimed at scholars whose professional academic interests are concerned with Mediterranean societies and cultures within the fields of Social Anthropology, History, Classics and Archeology, Popular Art and Literature. The journal intends to provide a forum whereby scholars working in academically and geographical contiguous areas can explore, and be exposed to, parallel and related theoretical issues. It sets out to establish a framework for interdisciplinary discussion, particularly important when studying Mediterranean societies and cultures, and to encourage dialogue between academics.
