    Call for Papers
    Navigation, Heroism, History
    National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London
    24–25 May 2018

    Continuing our well-respected series of conferences, Royal Museums Greenwich and the Royal Institute of Navigation are holding another event to bring together current research into the history of navigation.

    In the 250th anniversary year of James Cook’s departure in command of the Endeavour on the first of three famous voyages of exploration, this conference seeks to interrogate the way stories are told about heroism in the history of navigation, including land, sea, air and space.

    Suggested areas for discussion might include, but need not be restricted to:
    • the construction of navigational heroism
    • alternative perspectives on the existing canon
    • gender and the heroic
    • new tales of navigational heroism

    Proposals for papers on these or related themes are now being invited.

    It is anticipated that speaking slots will be of maximum 25 minutes, including time for questions.

    To propose a paper, or for further information, please send the title and abstract (approximately 200 words) to:

    Research Department Executive
    Royal Museums Greenwich
    Romney Road
    London SE10 9NF
    Tel 020 8312 6716
    E-mail research@rmg.co.uk

    Deadline: 26 January 2018
