British Commission for Maritime History (BCMH)
New Researchers in Maritime History Conference 2024
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, March 22 – 23, 2024
Call for Papers
The British Commission for Maritime History (BCMH) invites contributions to its twenty-ninth conference for new researchers. This year it will be held 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.
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.”
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.
Those wishing to offer a paper should fill in and submit an application via this Google form by January 15, 2024.
Please direct any queries to email@example.com
Anyone interested in attending the conference without presenting a paper is also warmly invited to register an interest; further information will be sent to you in due course.
