4th Mediterranean Maritime History Network Conference (Museu Marítim de Barcelona)

4th Mediterranean Maritime History Network Conference took place in the capital of Catalonia (Spain) 7-9 May 2014. About 160 researchers from around the world attended the conference (see SESSIONS_PROGRAMME). The Museu Maritim de Barcelona hosted the conference with the collaboration of the Universitat de Barcelona and other local institutions.

The principal aim of the Mediterranean Maritime History Network (MMHN) is to act as a clearing house for the exchange of information concerning research currently underway, related to the field of Mediterranean maritime history, widely conceived.

Therefore, the sphere of interests of the conference and the Network includes the Black Sea. One of the panels was devoted to Black Sea History (organizer – Gelina Harlaftis).
As parts of the panel presentations were made by employees of the Research Institute of Urban History Victoria Konstantinova (“Ukrainian port cities in the context of urbanization processes in the Russian Empire, the mid-19th - early 20th century”) and Igor Lyman (“Berdyansk of the 19th - the early 20th century: the unrealized plans to become “the second Odessa”).

These presentations, as well as the panel as a whole, are components of the project “The Black Sea and its port-cities, 1774-1914. Development, convergence and linkages with the global economy” (project coordinator – Gelina Harlaftis). The research project is included in the Action "Thales" financed by the Greek National Strategic Reference Framework, the E.U. and the Greek Ministry of Education.
