A four-week institute for twenty-four college and university faculty members, held in Barcelona, Spain, examining innovation in the medieval Mediterranean world arrising from the interactions of Muslims, Jews, and Christians.

The University of California, Santa Cruz proposes a four-week interdisciplinary NEH Summer Institute to introduce twenty-four college and university professors and graduate students to new approaches to the medieval Mediterranean (c. 1000–1500) and its role in the emergence of the modern world. In keeping with the NEH’s “Bridging Cultures” initiative, the Institute will focus on the Mediterranean as a zone of intellectual and cultural innovation born of the exchange among Christians, Muslims, and Jews, the dissemination of which was key in the emergence of the modern world. Building on the success of our 2008 and 2010 programs, our 2012 Institute will focus on the mechanisms, institutions, and relationships specific to the Mediterranean that enabled this process of cultural, scientific, and technological innovation across major cultural and ethnic communities
