7th International Congress of Maritime History

The International Maritime Economic History Association’s 7th International Congress of Maritime History will be held in Perth, Western Australia from Monday, 27 June to Friday, 1 July 2016.

The theme for the conference is “Old Worlds, New Worlds? Emerging themes in maritime history”. As with previous congresses, ICMH7 has adopted a broad concept of maritime history, treating it as an interdisciplinary discipline that covers all historical periods and areas and all aspects of humankind’s relationship with the sea from ancient times to the present.

Papers will be welcome on a wide range of research areas reflecting people and their activities and interest in, on, around and under the waters of the world.

The Conference theme provides opportunities for researchers to share their work with colleagues in their area of interest and with researchers in allied fields.
