The British Commission for Maritime History (BCMH), in association with the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust in Kent, England, invites contributions to its 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 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. The deadline for proposals to the 2020 conference is 28 February 2020.
