Call for Papers for the 5th MMHN Conference, Constanța, Romania, 9–11 May 2018


On the trail of the ancient Greeks’ trading emporia and the entrepreneurship of the bold Venetians and Genoese sea-farers, having in mind the examples of the Ottomans who closely guarded it and the modern merchants who discovered its rich agricultural resources, MMHN further extends its focus towards the Black Sea and its complex connections with the Mediterranean world.

MMHN welcomes proposals from scholars working on Mediterranean and Black Sea maritime history since the thirteenth century CE on the use of the sea as a resource, for transport, power projection, scientific purposes, leisure activities, and as an inspiration in culture and ideology.

The papers will be presented at the 5th MMHN Conference to be hosted by the ‘Ovidius’ University of Constanța in May 2018.

Please send by e-mail your proposal (max. 250 words) and a short bio (100 words) to the organizing committee (mmhn2018constanta@gmail.com) no later than 16 July 2017.
