New Researchers in Maritime History Conference
At this 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.
New Researchers Conference 2021 at Chatham Dockyard, 12-13 March
The BCMH, in association with the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, invites you to join them for the twenty-sixth conference for new researchers.
For 400 years the dockyard provided new ships and repair facilities for the Royal Navy, from sailing warships, steam warships to submarines. It is a wonderful location in which to hold this annual conference and provides a unique opportunity to hear from new scholars presenting their work in a historic setting.
The conference begins on Friday 12 March with a keynote lecture by Dr Helen Doe:
Fit for Purpose: Merchant Shipbuilders and the Naval Dockyards during the Napoleonic Wars
For more information about the conference, please write to our New Researchers Coordinator.
The Commission supports a clear Code of Conduct during its events.
