Maritime Humanities

The University of Exeter can call on a wide range of expertise and seeks to promote research into economic, social, legal, political, naval and environmental aspects of the British maritime past from the earliest times to the present day, drawing also on European and international experience.

It also houses the Centre for Maritime Historical Studies, the leading research hub for maritime history in the UK. This expertise, combined with arts practitioners and cultural historians and theorists, means we have the skills to tell our ongoing maritime story, in all its complexity, to the widest possible audience.
