Posted on 28/03/2014
The Society for Nautical Research has awarded Professor Andrew Lambert the Anderson Medal for his recent work, The Challenge: Britain against America in the Naval War of 1812 (Faber and Faber 2012). Each year, in memory of Dr RC Anderson, the Society awards the Anderson Medal for a book on maritime history. The Society for Nautical Research will present the award at the National Maritime Museum on 1 May, 2014.
Andrew Lambert is Laughton Professor of Naval History in the Department of War Studies at King's College. He is Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and also Director of the Laughton Naval History Unit housed in the Department. His work focuses on the naval and strategic history of the British Empire between the Napoleonic Wars and the First World War, and the early development of naval historical writing. His work has addressed a range of issues, including technology, policy-making, regional security, deterrence, historiography, crisis-management and conflict.
Professor Lambert will also be speaking at the Royal Historical Society symposium at UEA on Wednesday 30th April 2014. It will focus on the remarkable, yet largely ignored, cluster of anniversaries across Europe and the transatlantic world in the years between 1905 and 1920, and the commemorative festivities surrounding them.
