Dear Colleagues,

This new history website and 2012 conference plan sent out by Eric
Mills may interest the historically inclined and/or the keen
travellers..  
I've pasted the details rather than including the attachment. There's
nothing at the website yet except the newsletters (which have very
detailed coverage of the literature).

Dear Colleagues, 

The President of the Commission of the History of  Oceanography,
Professor Keith Benson, has asked me to distribute the following
information: 

1). The Ninth International Congress of the History of Oceanography,
ICHO-IX, will be held in Athens from 12-16 July 2012. It has the general
title "Oceanography in the Age of Globalisation: Historical and
Sociological Perspectives." For further information, you may contact one
of the organizers, Dr George Vlahakis at gvlahakis from yahoo.com. The first
announcement, with preliminary information on registration, locations,
visits and accommodation is attached to this message. A call for papers
and further information will be forthcoming soon. 

2). The Commission now has a newly-launched website,
http://www.oceanhist.org. It is still under development, but you may
find it convenient that all the past issues of our newsletter, History
of Oceanography, are available there now. In the near future, the
Commission's website will be the locus of announcements, news, and the
regular newsletters of the Commission. Please send feedback and
information to be available on the new website to Keith Benson at
krbenson from interchange.ubc.ca. 


With best regards, 


Eric Mills
