Free Public Talk: Raphael Samuel History Centre, History & Environment/Water and the Sea Series
Stephen Mosley (Leeds Beckett University) will be talking about ‘Blue and Green: Coastal Cities and Environmental History’
Date: Thursday 25 May 2017 Time: 6.00pm
Venue: University of Greenwich, Room KW002, King William Court, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row London SE10 9LS.
This talk explores the complex environmental relationships of coastal cities with the sea. Using examples of different types of coastal cities, it surveys how growing urbanisation, trade, industrialisation and tourism impacted on shorelines and the sea over time. It asks how communities have adapted to the challenges and risks of living in coastal cities and offers some suggestions for further research.
