The first part of the series opens discussion stemming from Honor and Shame and the Unity of the Mediterranean, edited by David D. Gilmore (Hunter College, CUNY). Dr. Gilmore’s questions for discussion are:
1. Are there continuities of culture in the Mediterranean World?
2. Is honor always “male,” shame always “female”?
3. How have the cultural patterns debated in the book changed over the past 25 years?
Honor and Shame and the Unity of the Mediterranean was originally published in 1987 as a special publication of the American Anthropological Association, number 22.
