Hakluyt Society Conference
Maritime Trade, Travel and Cultural Encounter
in the 18th and 19th Centuries

This conference is being organised by the Hakluyt Society in collaboration with the Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation (WISE) ; the Maritime Historical Studies Centre, University of Hull ; and the University of Worcester.
It focuses on the emergence and effects of new patterns of maritime trade and travel between c.1700 and 1900. Some of the themes considered will be the impact of the Atlantic slave trade, the effects of abolitionist intervention in West Africa, the consequences of coerced and voluntary migration, and the representation of travel and exploration around the Atlantic and the Pacific.

Speakers include Captain Michael Barritt (President of the Hakluyt Society), Professor David Richardson (Former Director of WISE, University of Hull), Dr Nigel Rigby (Head of Research, National Maritime Museum, Greenwich), and Dr Silke Strickrodt (Visiting Research Fellow, Centre of Modern Oriental Studies, Berlin).
