Call For Papers: The European Research Center for Ancient East-Mediterranean Cultures (CAMC) is structured as a joint venture between the University of Tartu, Estonia, the University of Münster, Germany, and the University of Helsinki, Finland, and has its seat at the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Tartu. Juridically it is a Consortium of the following chairs / departments:
1. Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Tartu,
2. Old Testament, Tartu,
3. New Testament, Tartu
4. Classical Philology, Tartu,
5. Ancient History, Tartu,
Besides the academic research and teaching at these three Universities the CAMC has officially the status of the "Baltic Branch of the Fondazione Mediterraneo", Naples, and is thus one of the leading Estonian-German bodies which is responsible for the cultural and social co-operation between Estonian and German academic institutions and the Anna Lindh foundation for the dialogue between cultures, the Swedish Institute, both located in Alexandria and the Fondazione Mediterraneo in Naples, Italy. Its domicile is located at the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Tartu, Estonia.
The objectives of CAMC are established as set out in the statutes of both, the University of Tartu and the Fondazione Mediterraneo, Naples, which will be proposed to the institutions of the partnership. The main objectives are generally:
-to identify, develop and promote areas of cultural and historical convergence between the countries and peoples of the Mediterranean on the academic level.
-to hold a close and regular dialogue between Mediterranean academic institutions and those of Estonia, Finland and Germany, by promoting the understanding of Mediterranean culture.
-to serve as a catalyst for promoting cultural cooperation and mobility between Mediterranean and Finno-Ugric speaking people on different levels (e.g. scholar, student exchange, etc.) targeting in particular the young and activities relevant to young academic people.
