The very beginnings of anthroplogical and transcultural research  are unimaginable without maritime travel. Many key texts discuss maritime relations and exchange processes. While Braudel's Mediterranean, Gilroy's "Black Atlantic" or Hau'ofas's "Sea of Islands" propose comparative cultural and socio-economic approaches, discussions about life in the anthropocene, multispecies ethnographies, and collaborative research in "para-sites" have significantly broadened our theoretical understanding and methodological tool kit. The seminar invites students to engage in the diversity of related issues, such as activism, biodiversity, climate change, creolisation, heritage, migration, natural disasters, polution, tourism and other mobilities, from the perspective of maritime anthropology.
