Maritime History and Culture Seminars Greenwich Maritime Centre

Maritime History and Culture Seminars, 2017-2018 

The Greenwich Maritime Centre is not involved in this series of talks but we wanted to share it with you and hope you will find it of interest.

This series, convened by the National Maritime Museum and held at the Institute of Historical Research, explores humankind's relationship with the sea through museum and archive collections. At is heart is the idea that our history is entwined with the maritime world and that people's lives have always been shaped by the sea. Bringing together established names and new researchers, the series draws upon a range of different approaches to encourage debate and discussion.

Next seminar:
