Coastal connections webinar series

From the perspective of colonial engineering, coasts are portals of globalization and key nodes of worldwide colonial economy based on the exploitation of resources. In this context, the coast is part of an extended network of infrastructures of mobility and communications that includes its counterpart, the hinterland.

Webinar - Colonial Coasts - 7 October 2021, 2:00PM - 3:30PM

Speakers: Maria Paula Diogo (NOVA University Lisbon), Ana Simões (NOVA University Lisbon), M. Luísa Sousa (NOVA University Lisbon), Hugo Silveira Pereira (NOVA University Lisbon)

The Coastal History Network will explore the binomial coast/hinterland by using examples from the 19th century Portuguese African Empire, namely by addressing the close relationship between the design of railway lines, roads and harbours, as well as the role played by ports as hubs for the circulation of goods, people, and diseases.
