Abstract

The UNESCO Chair “Ocean’s Cultural Heritage”
held by NOVA University (Lisbon, Portugal) since 2016
is unique worldwide and brings to the spotlight the
importance of obtaining knowledge on and of the
management of tangible and intangible cultural and
natural heritage of the open oceans, underwater realm
and coastlines. Supported on a transatlantic network of
researchers and their respective scientific and educational
activities, topics under the umbrella of the early modern
history of oceans such as underwater archaeology,
maritime cultural landscapes, marine environmental
history, cultures and societies, environments and
resources management, are to be addressed and
developed. These themes are part of the current
international agendas for science, development and
cooperation, and the UNESCO Chairs programme offers
the adequate framework for the establishment of
networking, for new common and integrated projects.
This Chair also enhances the UNESCO principles of
knowledge sharing, social solidarity, and establishing the
basis for the development of good practices. As such,
social sciences and humanities can contribute to inform
on multiple societal challenges such as the changing
conditions of marine ecosystems, climate change,
heritage preservation and, also, ocean literacy. Here we
are presenting the insights and motivations to develop
such a UNESCO Chair and a related networking
European project, both including components of
research, education and outreach. Not aiming at
presenting research or a global review, we intend to
present main goals of the UNESCO Chair “Ocean’s
Cultural Heritage” and to highlight how different
disciplines can contribute to the construction of
knowledge and preservation of memory about the
Atlantic since early modern times.
