McMullen Naval History Symposium
Welcome to the home of U.S. Naval Academy's McMullen Naval History Symposium. The History Department at Annapolis hosts this world renowned event biennially to highlight the latest research on naval and maritime history from academics and practitioners all over the globe. The 2019 McMullen Symposium will be held in Annapolis, Maryland, on 19-20 September, 2019. Held since 1973, the symposium has been described as the "largest regular meeting of naval historians in the world" and as the U.S. Navy's "single most important interaction with [an] academic historical audience."
The Symposium is located on "The Yard" at the U.S. Naval Academy, with events in Mahan Hall, Sampson Hall, Preble Hall and Alumni Hall.
Each day of the two day event begins with a light continental breakfast in Mahan Hall with publishers' book displays and an opportunity to mix with the leading naval historians in the world. AM and PM research panel sessions are held in the adjacent classrooms of Sampson Hall.
Lunch on Thursday, 19 September will be held in Alumni Hall (first 150 registrants) and lunch on Friday, 20 September is open for attendees to enjoy Annapolis dining, or the Officer & Faculty Club and the Drydock Restaurant in Dahlgren Hall. A reception will be hosted at the USNA Museum in Preble Hall, with a cash bar and heavy hors d'oeuvres, prior to the plenary McMullen Seapower Address on Thursday evening.
This DRAFT Agenda is a tentative #McMullen19 schedule. The Program Committee is still working on finalizing details, location assignments, and updating for paper withdrawals. This is offered in the interest of planning and transparency, but remains subject to change. New Revisions will be posted as they are completed.
