ON BLACK MEDITERRANEAN
EXN Journal is an ever-expanding platform, open to contributions dealing with the complexities of the Black Mediterranean frame of enquiry. In the coming months we will keep adding to this page, branching out in different trajectories, which will hopefully lead us towards new paths of research and analysis.
We are launching EXN Journal-On Black Mediterranean right in the peculiar days of COVID-19 global escalation. Back in 2016, EX NUNC was conceived as an anti-geographical project, which elected the online space as its main field of action. As we all are affected by isolation, confinement and loss in our everyday, offline life, we might find solace in the Internet as a supposedly open agora, where we get together, to conspire, reflect and image alternatives that are no more avoidable.
Although we are doing this online, still we are reflecting on and about a real, mappable body of water, connecting and dividing states and people, affected by concrete socio-political and economic behaviours, wounded by (hi)stories recent and past. An enclosed sea traversed by struggles that are still burning as we write. We believe that it is now more than ever important to look at the Mediterranean as one of the territories where our future ways of being, and of being together, are currently taking shape. Our attempt with EXN Journal-On Black Mediterranean is to open up a dissonant conversation about realities and imaginations of the Mediterranean today.
