Résumé

Ports and port cities have stood out over time as important categories of historical analysis. The study of port systems and the internal dynamics of European ports, side by side with navigation circuits and international commerce has generated a vast literature.In the contexts of the first and the second globalization processes it is essential to develop crossing studies to place ports within globally articulated networks. The relationships between European, African and American Atlantic seaports are fundamental to the understanding of overall dynamics related to the economy, population, policy and culture. A wide European historiography confirms the importance of the seaport spaces and dynamics. This tends to be reinforced with innovative contributions, focused for the last decades upon port systems analysis.

Presentation

Ports and port cities have stood out over time as important categories of historical analysis. The study of port systems and the internal dynamics of European ports, side by side with navigation circuits and international commerce has generated a vast literature.

In the contexts of the first and the second globalization processes it is essential to develop crossing studies to place ports within globally articulated networks. The relationships between European, African and American Atlantic seaports are fundamental to the understanding of overall dynamics related to the economy, population, policy and culture.

A wide European historiography confirms the importance of the seaport spaces and dynamics. This tends to be reinforced with innovative contributions, focused for the last decades upon port systems analysis. They stress the existence of intercontinental traffic networks that unite ports in an active trade system. This point of view based on a theoretical and functional conception of the existence of hierarchies and seaport complementarities – defined and redefined in articulations with particular conjunctures – has resulted in renowned historiographical productions. Inter-port communications axes, the portuary networks and the interactions between ports had also been taken into account. This approach is up to be applied to analyses that go from medieval period to today’s containerization.

Ports themselves are seen as economic and logistic enterprises that require the mobilization of industries and economic activities. Their impact reaches far beyond the port cities and the surrounding areas. Through institutionalized policies and regulated and formal activities, but also through informal networks and activities, seaports become the epicenter of leading economic dynamics: industry, commerce, services, finances, naval logistics, and maritime transport, are just some of the areas that boost research around port areas.

Because ports are platforms of articulation with extended hinterlands and forelands and because their economy requires manpower and labor force, it is important that this strictly economical dimension should be linked with the agents and with the human networks that sustained them. Transcontinental
emigration circuits, emigrants transportation, slave trade and forced labor, legal and illegal migrations, as well as migration policies and their local implementation are also topics that will be debated in this meeting, allowing us to connect the economic dynamism of seaports with its social and political agents.
