Mariners: Religion, Race and Empire in British Ports, 1801-1914

Hull History Centre is very proud to be a partner in this AHRC funded research project led by the University of Bristol. The project is funded for three years, running from 2022 to 2025.

Follow the team's progress via their dedicated blog and see where it all began in an article written for the University of Bristol's Arts Matter blog.

A project website is now live and hosts stories, research findings and much more.

Hull History Centre's contribution

Hull History Centre holds the extensive records of the Mission to Seafarers, as well as a number of smaller collections relating to local maritime missionary societies. These records are a key focus for the project's researchers.

As a partner in this project we are here to provide professional expertise and collections knowledge, to facilitate research access to the archives, and to act as one of the project advisory board members. We will also be contributing to a number of outcomes later in the project.
