Call for Proposals: 49th Annual Maritime Symposium

49th ALBERT REED & THELMA WALKER MARITIME SYMPOSIUM

“RESURFACED”

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2024 (BATH, MAINE)

The depths of the ocean hold mysteries yet to be revealed, however, there are truths waiting to be discovered beneath the surface. It is through diligent inquiry and open-minded exploration that we can begin to dive into the riches concealed below to enhance our collective understanding of the environment, our past, our creative endeavors, and our communities.

Maine Maritime Museum is pleased to announce its symposium “Resurfaced” on November 15, 2024. The symposium is interdisciplinary and seeks presenters from industry, science, and the humanities—including history, art history, nautical archaeology, ecology, maritime law, and other fields. We encourage presenters to approach the theme of “resurfaced” in broad and creative ways. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, how historical research champions underrepresented stories, how scientific data shifts understandings in marine ecosystems, how indigenous knowledge can inform waterway conservation, how archaeological discoveries provide cultural insights into the past, and how economic studies provide insights into the impact of coastal industries.
