The Maritime Heritage (15 hec)

Emphasising the 19th and 20th centuies, the course covers different maritime activities and how they relate to the development of industrial society and the built environment.

There is a focus on the Nordic waters and, besides technical and economic processes and systems, attention is given to both different types of vessels and more immovable objects such as harbours and shipyards.

The course enables students to specialise in recreational crafts in terms of, for example, individual objects or builders, or as a social phenomenon related to the increased focus on leisure and recreation in the post-war era.

Students may also specialise in problems related to historical documentations of vessels, materials-related problems or maintenance and restoration methods.

In a conservation-oriented perspective, attention is also given to how society defines maritime facilities and objects in terms of cultural heritage and to the resulting prospects of maintaining and further developing such cultural heritage.

Study visits and seminars relevant to the students’ individual projects are important parts of the course, in addition to literature studies and lectures.
