Global-Regional Nexus: The Sea and the Second World War
3-5 May 2012, King's College London
The King's College London War Studies Group and Global War Studies are pleased to announce a conference on the impact of the sea on the conduct, experience, and legacy of the Second World War. This was the first truly global conflict in which high intensity warfare was waged simultaneously across the world's oceans. The conference aims to investigate the ways in which the war raised the strategic status of the sea to "world's largest maneuver space," linking the experience in different maritime theaters and illustrating its role in national strategies. The conference seeks to promote an interdisciplinary approach, drawing upon the latest international scholarship from a variety of disciplines, including naval, international, social, and cultural history, regional studies, and international relations.
Inquiries regarding the conference should be addressed to: Dr. Marcus Faulkner (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Robert von Maier (email@example.com) respectively.
