Welcome to the website for the 2017 Oxford Naval History Conference, ‘Economic Warfare and the Sea, 1650-1950’.

Following on from the success of the 2014 Oxford Naval History Conference, ‘Strategy and the Sea’, the conference seeks to attract academics and naval professionals from across the world, to discuss different aspects of the relationship between sea power and economic warfare, from the age of sail through to the early years of the Cold War.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote speakers are Professor John Ferris (University of Calgary and Authorised Historian, GCHQ) and Professor Richard Unger (University of British Columbia).
