Naval Academy Announces a “Hybrid” McMullen Naval History Symposium for 2021

The Naval Academy History Department’s biennial McMullen Naval History Symposium is reputedly the largest and most influential event of its kind in the US, if not in the world. This year, confronted by the vagaries and realities of the COVID-19 / Delta variant pandemic, Symposium organizers Doctor Virginia Lunsford, Associate Professor, and CDR Stan Fisher, PhD, Assistant Professor, will mount a hybrid Symposium on Thursday and Friday, 23 and 24 September 2021. That is, attendees and presenters can attend either in-person, or remotely.

The Society’s 3-paper panel is scheduled for the late afternoon session on Friday the 24th. All presenters will be remote, but the panel Chair, RADM Fred Sanford, MC, USN (Ret) hopes to be our in-person presence.

Symposium registration is free, here on the McMullen webpage. Just scroll down and follow the prompts. Be sure to peruse the wide range of panels available, unfortunately not all at one time! It promises to be an amazing event.
