Down by the Water

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganisation and participation in conferences, workshops, courses, seminars


Waterways have been key factors in the development of societies from prehistoric times to nowadays, particularly due to their role as vectors for cultural interactions, material exchange, and transmission of knowledge between people and societies. Placing the focus on human-environment interactions in maritime, fluvial, and lacustrine spaces, this interdisciplinary seminar series aims to explore current advances in maritime history, archaeology, and anthropology world wide. The series is hosted by Dr. Veronica Walker, PI of the Ports and Harbours of Southeast Asia project, and Ass. Prof. Dr. Kristin Ilves, lead of the maritime archaeology program at the University of Helsinki and PI of the Survivors of Ragnarok project. Talks for Spanish-speaking audiences will be coordinated and hosted by Dr. Emilia Mataix Ferrandiz, postdoctoral researcher at the Centre of Excellence in Law, Identity and the European Narratives.
