PIMo, explores common forms of displacement and dispossession across the Mediterranean from the fifteenth century to the present.

With a focus on people – and the ideas, objects, and writing that accompanied them – the goals of the project include evaluating the ways and degree to which these historical events and experiences continue to shape contemporary representation of migration and displacement in the modern world, and to build a functional and highly-creative interdisciplinary network of collaborators from around the world.
