In a current approach to maritime culture, ARGOS - Ílhavo Maritime Museum Magazine, in its 7th edition, focuses on the relationship between Man and the Ocean.
The various texts brought together here offer plural perspectives on the discourse and cultural and social meanings of the seas and oceans. In a register open to several collaborations of renowned specialists (historians, museologists and scientists of the sea), the historical change of the images that human societies were building on the sea is highlighted.
As Argos is a periodical publication especially devoted to the debate of pressing maritime heritage issues, it is worth noting the tremendous challenge that the global climate crisis and the emergence of the postcolonial paradigm are bringing to maritime museums. The texts that come together here and the seven issues of Argos that have been published can help find a new way.
