The Center for the Ancient Mediterranean (CAM)

The Center, otherwise known as CAM, is an interdepartmental initiative at Columbia University in the City of New York which seeks to link together all the faculty, students and numerous departments that have an interest in the cultures of the ancient Mediterranean and adjoining areas. It is simultaneously a mechanism for coordinating courses, an information source, and a means of organizing conferences and other scholarly encounters.
