XIIth North Sea History Conference: Making Maritime History Personal Maritime Collections and Academic Research – their Mutual Relevance6 sep - 8 sep 2017
Van 5:00 - 14:00uur
The XIIth North Sea History Conference in 2017 seeks to involve maritime museum professionals and academic scholars, to generate knowledge and present new findings about the maritime culture of the North Sea region.
Researchers and academics have begun to discover more and more about the richness and scholarly potential of museum collections. This, in turn, has stimulated collaborative research activity between researchers and museums.
We hope that Conference delegates will be able to address three main issues:
- How can scholars best utilise maritime collections in their research?
- How should maritime museums most effectively apply the outcomes of academic research to museum products and activities?
- How can universities participate in museums programmes to valorise their findings to the wider public?
