Series of lectures: Aula Mediterrània 2020-2021
The inter-university programme Aula Mediterrània aims to foster studies on the Mediterranean with as wide and interdisciplinary a perspective as possible. Started in 2014, it is the result of the collaboration between the IEMed and the academic world.
The sessions of the lectures for 2020-2021 in the programme are characterised by the diversity of subjects and voices, as well as the importance of the events experienced by the region that are of interest not only to the academic world and experts but also the general public.
