Beginning with a free, open lecture on Friday evening at 7pm on Friday 22 June (wine reception from 6.30 pm) which will be given by Richard Holdsworth MBE (Chatham Historic Dockyard), this conference looks at some of these issues to offer a flavour of the richness of Kent’s maritime history. On Saturday 23 June the first session, starting at 9.55am, features Dr Chris Young (CCCU) who will outline the many changes to the coastline that have occurred over time. This geographical overview sets the scene for the three remaining sessions: ‘Coastal Communities’; ‘Trade and Industry’, and ‘Defending the Coast’. Each of these sessions comprises two speakers, drawing on the research expertise of the three Kent universities of Greenwich, the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University, as well as the internationally renowned maritime scholar Professor Maryanne Kowaleski (Fordham University, New York) and Jon Iveson, the curator at Dover Museum and a well-known expert on that town’s coastal defences.
