Monthly Lecture

Defining and Delimiting the Southern Ocean

Dr Alessandro Antonello

An overview of current research into the area of defining oceans.

Dr Antonello's current major project is titled “An international environmental history of the ‘World Ocean’, 1950s-2000s”.  It aims to investigate the ways in which states, international organisations, and international communities have engaged with and conceptualised the ‘World Ocean’ as a natural environment from the 1950s to the 2000s. In the context of current environmental and geopolitical challenges for the ocean, this project aims to analyse how these actors built institutions, communities, and territories in and for the ocean environment as a foundation for generating knowledge and claiming power, rights, and resources.
