Defense and Trade

The 2018 meeting of the SECHSA will be held
August 10 -11 in Charleston, South Carolina.

The conference will be held at Charles Town Landing State Historic Site on Friday and The Charleston Museum on Saturday.

Your local hosts and the SECHSA committee, plus assorted friends and colleagues, are planning two full days of papers, tours, and socializing.

Register now!

The Conference theme is “Defense and Trade,” a statement that describes colonial Charleston’s struggle to balance a solidly-defended harbor against a town open and accessible for trans- Atlantic trade. The tours explore the defenses of the city. Papers may focus on any or all aspects of this broad theme.

The Call for Papers went out on May 1, with title and abstracts due by July 1.
