Students: Mediterranean Club

The Mediterranean Club was created by the Fares Center and is managed by students of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy who harbor a particular interest in organizing activities related to the Eastern Mediterranean region. Since 2002, sustained programming has helped to bring the history, politics, culture, and society of the region to the attention of Fletcher students. The student group organizes roundtables, film series, and cultural events. In particular, Med Night evenings showcase the culinary, musical, dance, and literary traditions of the region through feature performances by students.
