Scientists describe coasts as contact zones, transition areas, spaces of exchange of resources and energy, places of tensions. If we look into the history of societies living by the ocean, all these elements are present too: the contacts, exchanges, resources, flows, conflicts, social, political and cultural plurality. This seminar series explores coasts and their complexities in a wide range of disciplinary, thematic, cultural and geographic contexts.
