AHRC grant work £45,000 allows workshops to go ahead

Published: 1 January 2016

Dr John McAleer (History, Southampton) and Dr Douglas Hamilton of the University of Winchester, have been awarded an AHRC network grant worth £45,000 for a series of workshops on the theme of islands and empire. The grant will be used to organise and convene workshops in Southampton, Winchester and at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The meetings will bring together a range of international scholars with the aim of exploring the catalytic roles played by islands in the shaping of modern European empires. It is hoped that the project as a whole will help to illuminate key issues relating to islands as historical spaces, with active roles in shaping and representing wider imperial contexts.
