The 9th New Researchers' conference organised by the British Commission for Military History will be held at the University of Southampton on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 November 2018. Its purpose is to bring together current research by postgraduate and early career scholars in the field of military history and related disciplines. Its philosophy is to offer an open and supportive forum for people with a broad range of interests – from material culture to those interested in intelligence or military technique – to meet and share their research.
This is a rare and brilliant opportunity for networking. We very much look forward to welcoming you all Southampton in November
