Πρόσφατα Νέα

Shipping has been the international business par excellence in many national economies, one that preceded trends in other, more highly visible sectors of international economic activity. Nevertheless, in both business or economic history, shipping has remained relatively overlooked. That gap is filled by this exploration of the evolution of European shipping through the study of two Greek shipping firms. They provide a prime example of the regional European maritime businesses that evolved to serve Europe's international trade and, eventually, the global economy. By the end of the twentieth century, Greeks owned more ships than any other nationality. The story of the Vagliano brothers traces the transformation of Greek shipping from local shipping and trading to international shipping and ship management, while the case of Aristotle Onassis reveals how international shipping was transformed into a global business.

  • The first serious treatment of Aristotle Onassis and his contribution to contemporary shipping
  • Will appeal to those interested in how successful global businesses are created and sustained
  • Based on significant archival research worldwide, showing how Onassis' successes came on the back of those of the Vagliano brothers

Snow in the Tropics by Thomas Taro Lennerfors and Peter Birch offers the first comprehensive history of the independent reefer operators. These shipping companies, such as Lauritzen, Salén, Seatrade, Star Reefers, and NYK Reefer, developed the dedicated transport of refrigerated products like meat, fish, and fruit by ship, from the early 20th century to the present. Snow in the Tropics describes how the history of the reefer operators has been formed in relation to shippers, such as Dole and Chiquita, in a constant struggle with the liner companies, such as Maersk, and in relation to global economic and political trends. It also covers how the industry is discursively constructed and the psychological drivers of the business decisions in it.

IMHA – International Maritime History Association and CITCEM –U. PORTO (Transdisciplinary Research Centre Culture, Space and Memory – University of Porto) are proud to announce that IMHA’s 8th International Congress of Maritime History will be held in Porto between June 30 and July 03, 2020.

This International meeting follows the successful congresses that have been held, every four years since 1992 in Liverpool, UK (1992), Amsterdam, the Netherlands (1996), Esbjerg, Denmark (2000), Corfu, Greece (2004), Greenwich, UK (2008), Ghent, Belgium (2012) and Perth, Australia (2016).
The main theme will be “Old and New Uses of the Oceans”, and the aim is to investigate the many aspects of the relationship between humans and the oceans.

As with previous congresses, ICMH8 adopts a broad concept of maritime history, treating it as an interdisciplinary field that covers all historical periods and areas and all aspects of humankind’s relationship with the sea.

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.

Μια φουρτουνιασμένη θάλασσα… έτσι ξεκινάει η ταινία. Τα αγριεμένα κύματα της καθρεφτίζουν μια θυελλώδη ερωτική ιστορία, αλλά και την ιστορία των Ελλήνων ναυτικών στις αρχές του 20ου αιώνα με φόντο την Άνδρο ή αλλιώς τη Μικρά Αγγλία, όπως ονομαζόταν το νησί τον καιρό των καραβοκυραίων και εφοπλιστάδων.

Mediterranean Encounters traces the layered history of Galata—a Mediterranean and Black Sea port—to the Ottoman conquest, and its transformation into a hub of European trade and diplomacy as well as a pluralist society of the early modern period. Framing the history of Ottoman-European encounters within the institution of ahdnames (commercial and diplomatic treaties), this thoughtful book offers a critical perspective on the existing scholarship. For too long, the Ottoman empire has been defined as an absolutist military power driven by religious conviction, culturally and politically apart from the rest of Europe, and devoid of a commercial policy. By taking a close look at Galata, Fariba Zarinebaf provides a different approach based on a history of commerce, coexistence, competition, and collaboration through the lens of Ottoman legal records, diplomatic correspondence, and petitions. She shows that this port was just as cosmopolitan and pluralist as any large European port and argues that the Ottoman world was not peripheral to European modernity but very much part of it.
