Chapter Summary

The growing interest in the history of Mediterranean countries and the Jews of the Mediterranean region among academic circles has become apparent and intensified in the last decade, with various conferences and publications, literary journals and artistic expressions addressing the topic. This chapter first discusses the published expressions of Mediterraneanism that emerged within Israeli academia. It then traces the manifestations of the Mediterranean topos within Israeli art and popular culture, using specific examples from the fields of music, literature, and visual arts to illuminate how the Mediterranean has been perceived in the past and how it is viewed currently. The Mediterraneanism in everyday life in Israel is also traced. The presence of Mediterraneanism on several levels shows that Yam Tikhoniut has already became an integral part of Israeliness.
