The Lost Navy Conference

3rd -5th of June 2024

Biographies of the Lost Navies around the Baltic Sea

The past is a treasury of endless narratives, and through the Lost Navy research programme, we cordially invite our colleagues to participate in this conference and share studies related to warships through historical, archaeological and cultural heritage perspectives. What does war and peace signify in a maritime context within the Baltic Sea region? What is the role of navies and how should we study them? Are we caught in a vicious circle of repeating old and accepted histories, when we should be directing our efforts towards common challenges? Join us in exploring these and other thought-provoking questions at the conference.
