Maritime History & Culture Seminars

Join us for a series of free talks in central London covering a range of fascinating subjects, from maritime art and naval strategy to Black History and museum exhibitions.

Everyone is welcome at our Maritime History & Culture Seminars and there is no need to book. Seminars typically include a 45-minute talk and a short Q&A session, followed by drinks in the Institute of Historical Research’s Common Room or a nearby pub. They provide an opportunity to hear from experts, find out about new research and meet people working in exciting fields.
