NARCHI, Nemer E. et al. The CoLaboratories of Social Oceanography: Plural Space Aimed at Fostering the Integral Conservation of Seas and Coastal Societies. Soc. ambient. [online]. 2018, n.18, pp.285-301. ISSN 2007-6576.

This essay reviews the scope and aims of Social Oceanography as it was presented and discussed at the First Social Oceanography Meeting organized at the Center for Human Geography Studies of El Colegio de Michoacán in September 2017. Social Oceanography is a hybrid field of study at the threshold between the natural and social sciences focused in understanding the relationships and interactions of past and present human societies, and the coastal/marine environment. We present our argument in three sections. First, we describe the chronological development and evolution of the discipline. Second, we offer a contemporary overview of the field of action of social oceanographers and the imperative need to extend this approach to all spheres of marine studies. Finally, we offer a synthesis summarizing the strengths and challenges in doing Social Oceanography and how we will deal with them through the formation of a CoLaboratory.
