    ‘Exploration and Memory’ Thursday to Saturday, 13–15 September 2018

    National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London

    Places still available

    A three-day conference exploring the themes of exploration and memory.

    To mark the opening of its new exploration wing in September 2018, the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, will host a conference centred on the role and significance of memory in histories of exploration.  Over the last few decades maritime exploration in its broadest sense has become one of the most exciting fields of study, with researchers from many different disciplinary backgrounds enriching, questioning and reinterpreting the subject for contemporary audiences. Increasingly, indigenous voices are challenging long-held assumptions and introducing a greater complexity to histories of encounter, exchange and the legacies of exploration. This conference is intended to consider exploration from the equally vibrant perspective of memory studies.

    Cost: £100 (full); £75 (concessions – students and people over 60)
