Call for Papers: “Who Burnt Whose Capital? The Royal Navy and Winning the War of 1812”

Keynote address by Professor Andrew Lambert,
King’s College London, 5-6 September 2014

The War of 1812 was very much a maritime war and one that had its roots in contrasting approaches to the conduct of maritime warfare, especially belligerent and neutral rights. This conference will explore the War of 1812 and the role played by the sea and the rival US and Royal Navies in the outcome of the war. Individual paper proposals or panel proposals covering any aspect of the War of 1812 will be considered. Papers covering the following areas of the War of 1812 will be especially welcome:

  • Naval tactics, operations and strategy
  • Use of technology
  • Amphibious warfare and joint or combined operations
  • Belligerent and neutral rights in maritime warfare
  • The War of 1812 and popular culture
  • The impact of the war on international relations and diplomacy
  • The legacy of the conflict

To submit a paper proposal please send a 300 word outline and a one page CV (per panel member for panel proposals) by 31 January 2014 to:
