Red Sea 9 - Networked Spaces. The spatiality of networks in the Red Sea and Western Indian Ocean

2-6 jul. 2019
 - Lyon (Francia)

The Red Sea IX Conference will be held from the 2nd to 5th of July 2019 in Lyon, France, the previous ones having been hosted by the British Museum, the University of Southampton, the University of Exeter (UK), the University of Tabuk (KSA), the University of Naples “L'Orientale” (Italy) and the University of Warsaw (Poland). The Red Sea series has, at its core, a strong interest in connectivity, since three past events centered on connections and networks (Red Sea III, IV, V): cultural contacts, seafaring and sea routes, the connectivity of ports and hinterland and obviously trade and merchants were the key topics explored by the contributors. After several events devoted to other subjects, Red Sea IX moves back to the issues of connectivity and networks, putting forward a space-oriented perspective. We postulate that human networks and space interrelate; connections and contacts often take spatial forms. Conversely the layouts and dynamics of networks often depend on a particular spatial context. In other words, by taking the issue of space as a starting point, we would like to bring out a renewed inquiry into human networks that once linked the Red Sea region, the western Indian Ocean and their surrounding areas, from prehistory to modern times from a transdisciplinary perspective (archaeology, history, geography, cartography, anthropology, ethnography, biosciences, philology etc.).
