Call: The Mediterranean is a whole world in miniature. This true cliché, hardly applicable in any other region on earth, is substantiated by a unique combination of geomorphological characteristics, historical trajectories and artistic accomplishments, as well as philosophical, political and scientific breakthroughs among others. A rich variety in the physical environment has been matched by the development of distinct yet intensely interacting cultures over time within a relatively small geographical space. Source of endless archetypes, the Mediterranean has launched a new school of historical thought through Fernand Braudel, which explored how the physical environment influenced the civilizations which emerged in the shores of this sea through time. More recently, the geographical thought has proposed terms of theoretical analysis like ‘urban spontaneity’ and ‘Mediterranean cultural geography’ to account for facets and theoretical as well as experiential ways of conceiving the spatial in this intricate world. The international conference Diachronic Artistic and Spatial Convergences and Divergences in the Mediterranean, organized by the Module Art-Architecture-Urban Planning and the MA Art-Cultural Heritage-Development Policies, both of the Hellenic Open University, purports to explore some of the aspects of cultural interactions in the Mediterranean world, conceived as both the sea and the lands surrounding it, through time seen as continuum. Emphasis is placed on artistic, architectural, planning, archaeological and spatial dimensions of these interactions. Themes: In particular, the following relevant dimensions will be pursued: *    Art, architecture and planning in the Mediterranean through time. Styles, particular features, formal and impromptu creations. *    Geographical features, landscape, memory, and artistic process in the Mediterranean. *    Artistic traces of converging or clashing cultures and their eponymous or anonymous representatives in the Mediterranean. *    Classical myth and the arts in the Mediterranean. *    Aesthetically oriented theoretical dialogues in the Mediterranean. *    Geographies of travel and/for the arts. *    20th- and 21st-century and present artistic interactions between the Mediterranean and the global: Orientalism, modernity, postmodernity. Proposals: In the above context is invited the submission of proposals for papers from art theorists and historians, architects, human and cultural geographers, social anthropologists, archaeologists, architectural historians, urban planners plus other relevant theorists. Proposals should include name/s of author/s, affiliation/s, a concise title, five [5] keywords, indicative bibliographical references, and an abstract of 200 to 300 words. Proposals should be sent to: 2023.mediterranean.conference@gmail.com Acceptance of papers will be announced by late November 2022.
