Europe and the sea in time and space

Term: 1st semester 2018/2019

This course, for masters and doctoral students, offers an interdisciplinary vision between Europe and the Sea in European society; it addresses the civilizational, cultural and political dimensions of European maritime communities.

The programme explores the ubiquity of maritime and fluvial realities in Europe’s history, economies and cultures; new challenges for the oceans surrounding the continent, and the implications of international relations and geostrategic maritime challenges for the EU. Students will also study the economic and political dimensions of the maritime industries and the context of EU Integrated Maritime Policy.

Objectives:

1) To develop a renewed, critical attention to maritime geographies and their inter-sectorial implications of maritime policies in contemporary times, with an historical perspective;
