Contributors are sought for an edited collection, under contract with publishers Taylor and Francis, that illuminates the many worlds of the Medieval Mediterranean, from 470 to 1350. In addition to narrative essays contributors will provide primary source materials, written and/or visual, illustrative of their argument and meant to engage students more deeply into the topic. In total, the editor seeks three contributors for each of eleven chapters. Final essays will vary between 2000 and 3000 words, depending on the type of primary source. In making the final selection, the editor seeks to balance primary texts (or selections of texts) and images. Chapters with general (yet flexible) essay themes are as follows:
• The Mediterranean and its Environmental History: natural history, geography, geology, plants and animals, biodiversity
• The Mediterranean of Antiquity: first inhabitants, Phoenicians and their contemporaries, the Roman Mediterranean
