  • Dr Laurence Publicover (University of Bristol)

Studying the history of port cities and their relationship to maritime endeavour and enterprise is a diverse and interdisciplinary practice, which draws on research methods from literary studies, sociology, anthropology and archaeology, and brings together aspects of social, economic and cultural history. In April 2017, the Centre for Port and Maritime History will hold its second annual postgraduate conference at the University of Bristol.

The aim of this two-day conference is to bring together postgraduates and early career researchers of any discipline who incorporate any aspect of port and maritime studies into their research. We hope that this event will encourage postgraduate students to become part of the vibrant research community brought together by the International Postgraduate Port and Maritime Studies Network.

Entry is free but booking is essential.

To book a place please contact Jack Avery, Siobhan Hearne and David Wilson

This conference is supported by the Economic History Society and The Society for Nautical Research.
