Workshop: Sea ships evidence for cultural exchange in global historical perspective
An interdisciplinary, international workshop for humanities, social and natural scientists
16th till 17th January 2015
German Maritime Museum
Questions about both motivation and implementation of cultural exchanges are today just as topical as then. From the end of the Middle Ages onwards particularly sea shipping contributed to an increase in transcontinental contacts: Expeditions led to the discovery of new sea routes and therefore to the development of merchant and military fleets for commercial business and territorial claims. Various factors caused the sinking of many vessels. These wrecks remain largely untouched on the seabed and left behind a historical snapshot. For scientists closed finds provide an optimal research base. But despite the fact that a lot of material culture of ship wrecks are known, an appropriate contextualisation of these finds in aspect of reciprocal exchanges has not been done yet.
The workshop pursues the question of which statements to cultural exchanges and daily life at sea in Early Modern Times will be available based on both maritime archaeology and the history of sea shipping.
Interested audience and discussants are very welcome. Please register your attendance by no later than 19 December 2014. Registration fee for non-speakers is 30, 00 (included all coffee breaks and lunchtime snack on the second day).
