Event details

The workshop is on the theme of 'Rethinking Eighteenth-Century Empires'.

A number of CIPCS members contributed to a one-day international workshop on the theme of ‘Rethinking Eighteenth-Century Empires’, held at the Highfield Campus on 20 January 2015. Colleagues from across the Faculty of Humanities were joined by visiting scholars from universities in Belfast, Potsdam, and Nancy. The workshop was divided into three roundtable sessions, with speakers offering short ‘position papers’ based on their current research followed by lively discussion and debate. Rachel Herrmann (History) and Christer Petley (History) offered papers on their respective research interests in North America and the Caribbean to the panel on ‘Other Eighteenth-Century Empires: Sovereignty and Representation’, while John McAleer (History) contributed to the panel on ‘The China Trade and the History of the Senses’. The variety of contributions demonstrated the university’s range of research interests and expertise in the field of imperial and post-colonial studies. The event was held under the auspices of the Southampton Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies.
