Canadian Nautical Research Society Annual Conference
Thursday, Aug. 17, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
HH-1013, Maritime History Archive, Henrietta Harvey Building, Memorial University
Historians have long emphasized the significance of the maritime as a transportation vector between global regions, between metropole and colony, and between networks of commodity extraction and manufacturing sites. The 2023 meeting of the Canadian Nautical Research Society presents papers with a focus on the maritime world as transformative, shaping the objects, ideas and people who travelled by sea. Maritime workers, vessels and the ports that connected ship to shore left indelible impressions upon the people and objects that passed through their midst, reshaping ideas on land but also impacting the maritime world itself.
The 2023 CNRS Conference is a hybrid meeting, hosted in-person at the Maritime History Archive in the Henrietta Harvey Building room HH-1013. The conference program and registration is available at https://www.cnrs-scrn.org/admin/conf_prog_2023_e.html.
