CFP: “Vectors: Port Cities as Gateways, Channels and Conduits”

The Centre for Port and Maritime History at the University of Liverpool hosts an annual interdisciplinary conference with a different theme each year. The 2014 conference, to be held September 11-12, will address the topic "Vectors: Port Cities as Gateways, Channels and Conduits." Day 2 (September 12) will now be a joint day co-chaired with the Envisioning Indian City Project (ETIC). The ETIC conference in full will be meeting at the University of Liverpool on September 12-13, with a focus on "Meeting Places: The City as a Space of Cross-Cultural Encounter."
    To reflect the coordination with the ETIC meeting, the deadline for submissions to the "Vectors" conference has been extended to July 15, 2014. Abstracts (300 words) and contact information should be sent to Andrew Popp by the deadline.
    For more information, please see the revised call for papers.
