The construction of early modern global Cities and oceanic networks in the Atlantic: An approach via Ocean’s Cultural Heritage
@St. Thomas, SW Coast Africa / T. H. Walker, Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, http://purl.pt/1243
CONCHA’s main goal is to address the different ways port cities developed around the Atlantic during the early modern period in relation to differing global, regional, and local ecological and economic environments. Speaking to different literatures on port cities in the Atlantic, material and immaterial culture, and environmental history, CONCHA aims to produce an Atlantic history of seaports in which the ocean – its ecosystems and species – is included as a dynamic player.
Taking place between January 2018 and December 2021, CONCHA will also leverage several of the research, education and dissemination aims and activities of the UNESCO Chair “Ocean’s Cultural Heritage” held by NOVA FCSH.
