organisation profile

CMRS studies the interaction of the oceans and human society. With expertise from historians, archaeologists, ethnologists, and social anthropologists, our research explores the interaction between humans and the sea from the earliest times to the Present.

CMRS is located in Esbjerg, Denmark, and focuses mainly on European studies but works with partners all over the globe to develop a comparative framework for our research. The centre is a home to both research and graduate studies.

Main fields of research are:

  • Maritime studies human utilisation of the sea as a resource and highway of transportation
  • Regional development social and economic activity in a geographic space
  • Maritime archaeology the maritime cultural landscape, its utilisation and material culture
  • Tourisme and Cultural Heritage the conservation and utilisation of coastal and marine resources

CMRS was established in 1994. It is a partnership of the University of Southern Denmark and the Fisheries and Maritime Museum. On 1 January 2008, the Archives of Danish Occupation History 1940-1945 joined CMRS as an associated partner
