Centre for Foreign Policy Studies June 2010 Maritime ConferenceThe Canadian Navy yesterday, today, and tomorrow; the ships, the sailors, their equipment, and what they did.
The 2010 Centre for Foreign Policy Studies (CFPS) annual Sea Power/Maritime Security Conference commemorates both the Canadian Navy’s centennial and the 70th
anniversary of the Canadian naval research and development community (now DRDC). The conference also commemorates Dalhousie’s long association with the Navy, especially the Centre for Foreign Policy’s direct, 40-year relationship with the Navy. The Canadian Nautical Research Society (CNRS) will hold its annual meeting in Halifax at the same time and many of their members will attend the CFPS conference.
Dates: Wednesday 16 June to Friday 18 June, 2010
Location: Pier 21, Halifax, NS
Canadian Navy Centennial / Ninth Maritime Command (MARCOM) History ConferenceThe Canadian Navy and the Commonwealth Experience, 1910-2010: From Empire to Independence
This conference, presented by the Canadian Navy in proud association with the Canadian War Museum, aims to situate Canadian naval development over the past century within the broader comparative context of other Commonwealth navies, exploring the national, regional and chronological “drivers” – the factors that have determined the different paths along which we have evolved after gaining independence from Britain. The program has been developed to include major historians from Australia, Britain, Canada and the United States presenting the majority of papers, with contributions also from other Commonwealth countries and serving naval professionals (the USN is considered one of the fundamental drivers that have shaped each of us, but again in different ways).
Dates: Wednesday 5 May to Friday 7 May, 2010
