Dear Colleagues- thank you for circulating this call for papers.
Urbanization processes coupled with shifting oceanic cycles have dramatically changed cities and landscapes in and around the North Sea over the centuries. However spatial pressure within the interpenetrating urban and ecological North Sea systems has reached unprecedented levels.
How can the spatial disciplines address this condition?
This conference opens up a new perspective on historical urban studies by advancing the spatial realm of the sea into the geographical and conceptual foreground. We argue that it is vitally important to examine this evolving space as a cultivated artifact in order to understand its past and therefore to imagine its (sustainable) future. Such an examination requires a combined cross-disciplinary effort to re-conceptualize the sea as the essential founding space of the region and an agent of urban development.
How have historical processes of ocean urbanization reshaped our regional economic, social, cultural, and human environments both at sea and on land?
In particular regarding;
- physical conditions; ecology, infrastructure and artifacts
- legal and theoretical constructions
- narratives, representations and projections
- heritage debates
Please submit your proposals of 300 words by January 15th to
