This collection of articles supplements the previous issue
on „The Mediterraneans. Transborder Movements and
Diasporas“ (vol. 9 (2000) no. 2). Both publications
resonate with a shift in how Mediterranean cultures and
societies are constructed in anthropological research and
discourse today. Anthropology finds itself challenged by
forms of social life and experience that are neither wholly
traditional nor unambiguously modern, by social actors who
in their own practices and attitudes are breaking down the
divide between tradition and modernity. We are studying
cultures that we can no longer mistake for those traditional
communities whose invention anthropology was complicit with.
In dealing with this challenge, a potentially transnational
dialogue between anthropologists of various backgrounds has
emerged – a dialogue that we especially hope to foster and
support with this edition of AJEC.
