This chapter argues that the last decades have seen the historiographical picture of modern quarantine deeply transformed thanks to the application of new, elaborate theoretical insights and cutting-edge research and approaches from a wide spectrum of disciplines. As a consequence, quarantine history has been expanded into “quarantine studies”, an ever more fertile global and interdisciplinary field of inquiry. Surprisingly, major international scholarship on this emergent field in the last two decades has tended to neglect left tended to the Mediterranean apart in various respects. This introduction claims that the Mediterranean foundation of this collection of essays is not contradictory but actually complementary, and further contributes to the current efforts to the writing of a global history of quarantine. Instead of enlarging the geographical scope to draw connections with the Atlantic, the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the book actually attempts to “disclose” the global trends underlying local Mediterranean processes, to “provincialize” Mediterranean quarantine.
