Centre for Port and Maritime History
The Centre for the Port and Maritime History is a collaborative venture between Liverpool John Moores University, Merseyside Maritime Museum and the University of Liverpool.
The Centre undertakes historical research on port cities and examines their relationship to maritime ventures and enterprise. More specifically, the Liverpool John Moores University members of the Centre conduct research into:
- Marketing and advertising in the British merchant marine
- Liverpool shipping and decolonisation in the twentieth century
- Liverpool and the British Empire in the eighteenth century
- Art and the maritime environment
- Oral history and life story narratives in maritime occupations
- Maritime education and rejuvenation in Liverpool
- Maritime security
The Centre hosts a range of events throughout the year including the annual Mike Stammers Memorial Lecture in spring, the Peter N. Davies Seminar in the fall and its annual conference in September.
The Centre draws on expertise from staff at Liverpool John Moores University, the University of Liverpool and the Maritime Museum, as well as from visiting research fellows and board members working in other UK Higher Education Institutes and beyond, in the heritage, media and transport sectors.
In collaboration with Liverpool University Press, the Centre has recently launched a book series, Studies in Port and Maritime History, edited by the current Centre’s Co-Director, and former Co-Director.
