The ongoing effects of the Eurozone crisis and political upheavals since the Arab Spring have significantly altered the established coordinates of Mediterranean space and society. Geographers have sought to explain these phenomena through the changing forms of state borders and territoriality, the spatial re-divisions capital and class, and the contested spaces of migration, citizenship, and belonging. However, much of this research remains largely fragmented along predominant sub-disciplinary concerns, territorial scales, and regional foci. In this session we explore the rescaling of the Mediterranean region. The panel will explore two main questions: (i) what recent events/processes are changing the way geographers have traditionally imagined the area, and; (ii) what theoretical and empirical gaps remain under-developed for future research?
