The curriculum of the Summer School is therefore multidisciplinary and aims to reach the following outcomes:
- to strengthen the basis of multidisciplinary approach in the framework of marine environmental and ecological history studies with special emphasis to the Mediterranean Sea, including the Black Sea.
- to contribute to build up bridges between humanities, social sciences, environmental and ecological approaches especially in students and young scientists, providing a common language and a better understanding of reciprocal needs and potential.
Whereas humanities (history, archaeology, zoo-archaeology) and social sciences (anthropology) may provide valuable analyses and data regarding both historical insight of humans settlement and of the use of natural resources, the environmental and ecological disciplines may provide methodologies to analyze gathered and more recent data in the context of ecological theory and build up predictive models which might shed light on the possible trends in marine biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
