King's Seminars - Autumn term 2021

King's Seminars - Autumn term 2021

We take pleasure in announcing the programme for the King’s Maritime History seminars for the autumn term 2021. As you will be aware, these remain uncertain times, and there have been serious constraints on any hopes to allow visitors to the college throughout the planning of the programme. As a result, we will begin with four fully online sessions to begin with and continue to take advantage of the extra reach and flexibility that that has been giving us. 

The expectation is that, from January 2022 onward, we will be able to meet in person again, as normal, whilst also incorporating the best elements of the online experience in the future. This will hopefully mean simultaneous broadcasts of sessions or the occasional fully online session which might give us the opportunity to host a speaker from overseas who we might not otherwise be able to see. You may rest assured, however, that the priority is to return to the seminars in the format that we are used to as quickly and fully as possible. 

In the meantime, I’m sure that you will find the programme for the autumn stimulating and interesting, and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible online. Unfortunately, the uncertainty has meant that again it was not possible to finalise the programme for the full year, but, as soon as the situation in the college is clarified, we can make the adjustments needed to get the programme for the spring term announced to you quickly.

All the best for another year of maritime and naval history, 

Alan James
