9.2 Mediterranean incarnate (2)

How does the author reframe cosmopolitanism/multiculturalism in chapter 7?

One thought on “9.2 Mediterranean incarnate (2)

  1. The Mediterranean has very vibrant and important cosmopolitan cities that differ from others around the world. One of the large differences is how the cities in the region show their modernity. There are many problems with Nationalism, but the Mediterranean is famous for its diverse communities. People who may speak different languages, practice different religions, and wear different clothes can successfully live in the same city. Although it is not easy, the Mediterranean is proof that is it possible. However, European influence is challenging to stop. Starting around 19900, their cosmopolitan model became based more on nationalism. We can think of the current port cities as a mix of being European modern and also multicultural.
