Call for Papers - ‘Strategy and the Sea’: An International Conference in Honour of Professor John B. Hattendorf
10-12th April 2014
All Souls College, Oxford
A conference will be held in Oxford to celebrate Professor John B. Hattendorf’s leading contribution to naval history. For thirty years as the Ernest J. King Professor of Maritime History at the U.S. Naval War College, John Hattendorf has furthered historical understanding among naval professionals and reinvigorated maritime scholarship. Reflecting the breadth of John Hattendorf’s historical perspective, this conference provides an opportunity for research students and recognised authorities to present the latest research in naval history that pushes traditional boundaries and asks innovative questions. The organizers seek to stimulate discussion between naval personnel and academics on theformulation and execution of strategy, the development of traditional and irregular naval tactics, and the influence of seapower in international relations. Additional topics might include finance, naval theory, logistics, social history, shipbuilding, and the ‘fiscal-naval state’. Speakers will give papers of twenty minutes on their research followed by ten minutes of questions from the audience.
Those wishing to present a paper should send a proposed title and abstract of no more than 300 words along with a one-page CV to the conference organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline is 1 September 2013.
A website with further details will be live shortly.
