New Researchers in Maritime History Conference
At this annual conference, the British Commission supports emerging scholars who wish to share their work in a supportive environment and build relations with other maritime historians. We encourage applications from research degree students and warmly encourage participation by independent scholars. Contributions can address all aspects of maritime history in its broadest sense.
It is held in the spring of each year, and the location moves around Britain, as the conference is hosted by a variety of universities and museums and is sponsored by the Society for Nautical Research.
New Researchers Conference 2022, at Chatham Dockyard 8-9 April
The 2020 new researchers due to take place at Chatham Historic Dockyard had to be postponed due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We held a virtual fully-online new researchers event in March 2021.
We look forward to to inviting you to join us in person again in 2022.
More details for attendees and how to register will be released nearer the time.
For more information about the Conference, please write to our New Researchers Coordinator.
The Commission supports a clear Code of Conduct during its events.
