New Researchers in Maritime History Conference
April 8-9, 2022
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 relationships 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.
Those wishing to present a paper should fill out the online form, or consult the Call for Papers pdf. The deadline for submissions is February 25, 2022. Currently, the conference is scheduled to be held in-person. Those wishing to attend the conference without presenting a paper are also very welcome, and can register through the conference website.
