Call for papers - New Researchers in Maritime History
Posted: Tuesday 28th September 2021
The British Commission for Maritime History (BCMH), in association with the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust, invites contributions to its twenty-seventh 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 for new scholars to present their work in a historic setting.
The Conference, which is supported by the Society for Nautical Research, helps emerging scholars who wish to share their work in a supportive environment and build relations with other maritime historians. We encourage applications from postgraduate students and warmly encourage participation by independent scholars. Contributions can address all aspects of maritime history in its broadest sense.
New Researchers will be held at Chatham Dockyard on 8/9 April 2022
Those wishing to offer a paper should complete the online form
Please direct any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline is 25 February 2022
Anyone interested in attending the conference without presenting a paper is also warmly invited to register an interest; further information will be sent to you in due course.
