CfP: New Researchers in Maritime History Conference

Applications are invited for the twenty-third New Researchers Conference. The conference provides a unique opportunity for emerging scholars to present their work in one of the world’s most important historic maritime settings.

The Conference supports emerging scholars who wish to share their work in a supportive environment and build relations with other maritime historians. We encourage applications from research degree students, the world of museums, and warmly encourage participation by independent scholars. The organisers encourage contributions that address all aspects of the maritime history in its broadest sense.

Those wishing to offer a 20 minute paper should complete the form on the conference website and send it to Dr G H Bennett ( and Dr Elaine Murphy ( no later than 14 February 2016.
