Visual representations of the deep Mediterranean Sea (past-present-future)

Visual representations of the deep Mediterranean Sea (past-present-future) IMERA, 12 November 2021

This meeting explores the multiple and heterogeneous efforts to visualize and operate in the Mediterranean Sea as a three-dimensional space. The journée d'étude focuses on methods and perceptions from different disciplines (oceanography, archeology...) and practices (fishing, submarine operations...).

The meeting will provide empirical examples of and reflections on both pictorial and non-pictorial images in scientific and cultural constructions of the deep Mediterranean Sea. We will also ask what visualizations are missing and, most importantly, what do volumetric images tell us about the possibilities open for alternative Mediterranean futures.


This meeting is by invitation only. Please write to if you are interested in attending.
