Applied Marine Environmental History in the Indo-Pacific: Problems, Sources and Opportunities

This one-day workshop will critically evaluate the problems, sources
and opportunities for developing baselines to inform management and
conservation, and to better understand long-term patterns of marine
resource exploitation and trade, in the Indo-Pacific region. By focussing
on recent and current research in marine environmental history and
historical marine ecology from established and emerging scholars, it
is designed to foster innovative and interdisciplinary solutions to the
challenges of investigating the past, present and future of Indo-Pacific
seas. The workshop builds on earlier initiatives at the Asia Research
Centre, including the ‘History of Marine Animal Populations – Asia’
project (2009-14) and the ‘Pearls, People and Power: Pearling and the
transformation of the Indian Ocean World’ (2014-19) Discovery Project,
underlining the Centre’s role as a global leader in the applied study of
human-environment interaction in the Indo-Pacific World.
