Register now for New Researchers in Maritime History

Date: 22-23 March 2024

Location: University of Strathclye

The British Commission for Maritime History (BCMH), in association with the University of Strathclyde, warmly invite you to the twenty-ninth conference for new researchers. This annual conference organised by BCMH is supported by the Society for Nautical Research.

Join us at the University of Strathclyde in the heart of Glasgow, a city transformed through maritime trade and shipbuilding from the early modern period onwards. This is an ideal location to hold this annual conference and provides a unique opportunity for new scholars to present their work in a historic setting and in a supportive environment.
As well as papers from new researchers, the conference will also feature a keynote address by Professor Alison Cathcart, Professor of Early Modern Scottish and Archipelagic History at the University of Stirling, who will speak on “The ‘scattered isles in the polar ocean’: Scotland and the sea in the (long) sixteenth century.”
