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. 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.
Paper proposals should include an abstract and a curriculum vitae. Panel proposals are welcome and should also include a description of the panel’s theme. The deadline for proposals is 10 January 2012. It is planned to publish the conference proceedings in due course. Submissions and queries should be addressed to: Dr. Marcus Faulkner (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Robert von Maier (email@example.com) respectively.
