A chapter written by ECU history professor Timothy Jenks, “Lord Nelson’s Procession by Water: The River Thames and late-Georgian Naval Spectacle,” was included in the exhibition, “The Royal River: Power, Pageantry and the Thames” at the National Maritime Museum in London, England.

Jenks attended the April 25 opening ceremony, where the exhibit was officially opened by the Queen of England. The exhibit was curated by Tudor historian Dr. David Starkey. (Read more about Starkey at

According to his faculty web site at, Jenks is a historian of eighteen-century Britain, specializing in the study of political culture and national identity. He has conducted research at the National Maritime Museum and previously contributed to their exhibitions and catalogues. His most recent book, “Naval Engagements: Patriotism, Cultural Politics and the Royal Navy, 1793-1815), published by Oxford University Press,  examined the role of naval images in British political culture.

Prior to coming to ECU in 2002, Jenks taught at the University of Toronto, York University and the University of California at Berkeley.
