    Call for papers: After Longitude - Modern navigation in context, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, 22-23 March 2012
    From: UNK
    Date: 2011 Jun 6, 00:58 -0700


    After Longitude - Modern navigation in context
    National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London
    Thursday-Friday 22-23 March 2012

    Following a successful meeting in 2010, the National Maritime Museum and
    the Royal Institute of Navigation are planning a second symposium to
    bring together current research in the history of navigation.

    The symposium will explore the wider impact of the 'discovery' of
    longitude and the ways in which navigation has evolved since then. In
    particular it will aim to investigate the connections between
    navigational advances and the development of exploration, surveying,
    commerce and empire from the 19th century to today.

    Possible themes might include, but would not be restricted to:

    - the development of navigational instruments, maps and charts and
    related techniques
    - the impact of changing technologies on practices and practitioners
    - the links between marine, land, air and space navigation
    - research that places these developments into broader contexts

    Proposals for papers on these and related themes are now being sought.

    It is anticipated that speaking slots will be of about 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 Administrator
    National Maritime Museum
    London SE10 9NF
    Tel 020 8312 6716
    Fax 020 8312 6592
    E-mail research@nmm.ac.uk

    The deadline for receipt of proposals is Friday 30 September 2011
