Cambridge Oceanic and Maritime History Workshop
Call for Papers – Lent Term 2022
The Cambridge Oceanic and Maritime History Workshop is delighted to announce its Call for Papers for Lent term 2022 (January 18-March 18, 2022). Postgraduate students and early-career researchers are welcome to apply to present their research on maritime ‘worlds’ and societies, the sea as a sacred space, maritime knowledge networks, ‘terraqueous’ spaces, encounters, migration and trafficking of people, motions of objects, the subaltern sea, diasporas, maritime identities, environmental history, and water cultures. We welcome both PhD and MPhil students who wish to discuss their work-in-progress in an informal setting to submit their drafts. All disciplines related to History are very welcome to join the Workshop.
The Workshop is expected to take place partially on Zoom with the option of some in-person sessions in Cambridge. During Lent term 2022, we will meet on three Fridays at 5 pm (UK time). Due to high demand, we might consider adding additional sessions. If you are interested in applying, pleased send a short abstract (max. 300 words) with a provisional title and some biographical information to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact one of the convenors, Jean-Marc Hill (email@example.com) or Lavinia Gambini (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also, do not miss any updates by subscribing to our mailing list (send an email request to email@example.com). The deadline to submit a proposal is January 10, 2022.
