Canadian Nautical Research Society - 2012 Conference and Annual General Meeting

The War of 1812: Differing Perspectives

Picton – 15 19 May 2012

For our 2012 conference, the Society has retained the War of 1812 as the subject matter with an emphasis on new scholarship, varying perspectives and fresh analysis. We are looking for different perspectives – Canadian, American and European – that shed light on matters that have not generally been treated in any great depth in the litterature of the last two centuries and that can broaden our horizons beyond what is fast becoming stereotypical in the general public's eye.

Hosted on the shores of Lake Ontario, this conference will be located at The Victory in Picton; please find Google map details here. The Victory will also be hosting an exhibition of "War of 1812" art to complement the conference. Conference sessions and banquet will be in various locations with time for sightseeing, local attractions, wineries and a strong possibility of a "re-enactment." A variety of accommodation options are available in the immediate area.

Please also see our conference programme.

Various accommodation possibilities are available.

Paper proposals are requested to be made by 15 April 2012.
