mmhn_conf_posterThe Centre of Maritime History in the Institute for Mediterranean Studies announces the Sixth International Conference of the Mediterranean Maritime History Network (MMHN), which will take place at the Institute for Mediterranean Studies in Rethymno, from the 27th to the 31st of May 2024.

The Mediterranean Maritime History Network (MMHN) aims to promote pan-Mediterranean Maritime History and boost dialogue and collaboration between maritime history scholars. Founded in 2002 by a group of historians in love with the Mediterranean, MMHN embraces all aspects of maritime history, welcoming innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the Great Sea. Since the opening of its activities the network flourished, reaching academicians, researchers and a wide range of experts from all over the world.

The conference will feature presentations exploring the relationship between humans and the sea in all its facets: on the sea (seamen, ships, navigation, sea trade, war, piracy); around the sea (maritime communities, islands, port cities, shipping, shipping-related, fishing and touristic businesses); in the sea (fishing, marine resources, environment); because of the sea (maritime transport systems and entrepreneurial networks, maritime empires, international and national maritime institutions and policy); and about the sea (the maritime culture and heritage, the ideology, the myths and poems of a sea, the impact of the sea on art).
