Michael B. Miller (Miami, FL ): Ports in the Global Ages Throughout the twentieth century ports were the nodes and gateways in a global system of exchange. But momentous changes in maritime business and also in globalization in the last half of the century changed the space, hierarchies, and cultures of world ports. This talk will trace that evolution from ports in one global age to ports in another.
Michael B. Miller is the author of “Europe and the Maritime World:
A Twentieth-Century History” (Cambridge University Press, 2012).
