Third Conference of the Black Sea Project

The aim of the conference is to convey the results of the research carried out within the project as well as invite papers related to its themes. The project seeks to trace elaborate and demonstrate the economic and social development of 25 port-cities of the Black Sea that formed an integrated market that became the larger grain-exporting area in the world in the course of the longnineteenth century. By focusing on the sea and its ports, the analysis offers an insight in the economic activities of the port-cities, the coastal area and the hinterland, the integration of markets and their inter-linkages with the global economy, beyond political boundaries and divisions. The global economy triggered development and convergence of regional markets. Papers are related to the subject of the project along the following six axes: The Black Sea as a unit of research. Marine environment and six port systems. Six maritime regions. Economic and social development of twenty port-cities. Patterns of urban structure. City-planning and architecture. Macro-analysis. Formation of macro-economic statistical series. Comparison to world economy. Micro-analysis. Entrepreneurial elites and major Greek business families. Networks linking to the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. We welcome papers with an innovative approach on the above mentioned topics and focusing on the port-cities of the southern Black Sea port-cities including Istanbul. We encourage the presentation of new archival sources and related analytic and synthetic approaches that draw upon the documentation presented. We also welcome critical approaches to bibliography, published works and historiography. The working language of the conference will be English. The travelling and accommodation expenses of the members of the project will be covered by the organizers.
