5 -6 September 2018
THE NAO VICTORIA International Congress

Throughout the 13th to the 16th century, Basque naval technological evolution would produce craft that came to dominate the commercial routes opened up between the Mediterranean and the European Atlantic. This process culminated with the development of the ocean-going ships, which were protagonists of the first circumnavigation and exercised their hegemony in the relations between the old and the new worlds. 2018 is the year of cultural heritage, and the antechamber of the 5th Centenary of the First Circumnavigation of the World by Juan Sebastian Elcano on board the Victoria.

ICMM Regional Conference - Call for Papers

PORTS – NODES OF GLOBALIZATION – History, Perspectives, Museums
Ports have always been hubs of global economic and socio-cultural relationships.
The German Port Museum, with the public Foundation of the Historic Museums Hamburg is currently developing a new national museum dedicated to the history and presence of German ports and their connections to the world. The future German Port Museum will be a place where the port serves as an explanatory model of global economic and socio-cultural connections.

15th International Symposium on Boat and Ship Archaeology (ISBSA 15)

Local and inter-regional traditions in shipbuilding.
 
Each region has its own shipbuilding traditions that reflect the particularities of its nautical area, mainly its geographic and economic specificities but also on its political, social and cultural characteristics. The more pronounced these particularities, the stronger and more persistent the traditions. Beyond the local level, strongly marked by specific activities on a limited scale, these same phenomena can also be found at a regional level and, more broadly, within the well-defined spaces of inland water navigation, and within enclosed sea areas. However, when the maritime space widens across the open sea, specificities fade to make room for more common traditions that tend to a certain universality as maritime spaces are increasingly global. lt is in this context that changes in shipbuilding traditions occur, with the contradictory interplay of local or regional resistance and interregional reciprocal influences, which may lead to transfer of technology.
 
Depending on the scale and nature of maritime exchange, and depending on the extent of maritime areas being studied, these developments will be more or less rapid and more or less complex. lt is these interactions between local and interregional traditions, open seas and enclosed seas that we seek to demonstrate through examples from nautical areas as varied and representative as possible.
