This issue is devoted to the Mediterranean world from a complex, de-essentialised and de-romantised perspective. It is viewed as a locus of intercultural connections and a crossroads of socio-environmental emergences. But particularly poignant at this moment is that socio-environmental perspective with the recent tragic mining accident: may this issue serve as a homage to the mining industry and its workers, reflected so aptly by the images by Carma Casulá from another mine, “Ojos Negros.”
