The Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society at the University of New Brunswick, in conjunction with the Canadian-American Centre at the University of Maine and the New Brunswick Museum, is pleased to announce the first in a series of three conferences/symposia in commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812.  This first conference will deal with the origins of the war, the period of ‘undeclared’ warfare in 1812 and the war on the high seas.  Dr. Andrew Lambert, the author of The Challenge: America, Britain and the Naval war of 1812 (Faber & Faber, 2012), will be the keynote speaker.

Those interested in presenting at the conference should send a title and brief description of the paper (250 words) and a short bio to Dr Marc Milner, Director of the Gregg Centre at [email protected] before 1 April 2012.
