Seatimes: How Climate Change Transforms Human-Marine Temporalities

Marine ecosystems are changing due to climate change. What implications does this have for people whose lives are closely entangled with life below water?

Focusing on the temporal aspects of these relations, the SEATIMES project aims to develop a new multispecies marine anthropology that can better account for how humans and marine life become entangled in new ways through changed temporal orientations, multispecies rhythms and temporal practices.

The Seatime project aims to investigate these issues through comparative multispecies ethnographies on the Maine (US) lobster industry, Senegalese small-scale fishing, and whale-watching in the North-Atlantic.
