Conference "The governance of Atlantic ports (14-21th). Policies and seaport structures"

Madrid, 13-15 juin 2013

Du lundi 13 au mercredi 15 mai 2013

Thème: Echanges, Négoce, Enconmy

The Governance of Atlantic Ports (XIV-XXI Centuries) — Policies and
Seaport Structures is the first of three scientific meetings intended to
discuss central topics emerging from plural investigations centred on
seaports. Paving this way, a research network was established, aiming to
enhance the results of multiple on-going individual research centred on
Atlantic seaports (European, African, Brazilian and Latin American).
This meeting aims to systematically analyze structural aspects that i

Thème: Patrimoine maritime, Construction navale, Archéologie sous-marine

First of all, the aim of the conference is to identify the main periods of change in the elaboration of patterns of shipbuilding from the Antiquity to the current period, in as many geographical and cultural areas as possible. Besides, the emphasis will be laid on the boat strictly speaking, whatever its environment (river, sea, or both). By taking into account the latest archaeological research, approaches combining the perspectives of historians, historians of technology and art historians, various treatises on shipbuilding, and iconographic sources, what is at stake is the elaboration of new modes of interpreting the emergence of patterns of boats and the very way they were built. Numerous periods of shift have already been identified, focusing on major changes : the switch from a shipbuilding resting on assembling of planking by the ligature to the recourse to pins and mortises in the archaic period in Greece ; or the switch from a « longitudinal on planking » construction, to a « transverse on rib » construction in the Mediterranean of the late Antiquity and the beginning of the High Middle Ages ; or the slow evolution of the ship on the line between the 16th and 17th centuries. As far as the contemporary period is concerned, the issues of motorization and the use of metal are obviously paramount, and the questions of prefabrication and gigantic scales prevail in the second half of the 20th century.
