Workshops: An Empire of Islands: Concepts, Contexts and Collections Event

12 - 13 April 2016

Event details

First of three workshops funded by an AHRC fund.

The first of three workshops in the AHRC-funded program 'An Empire of Islands', organised by Dr John McAleer (History, Southampton) and Dr Douglas Hamilton of the University of Winchester, will take place at Southampton on 12 and 13 April 2016. The second workshop will take place in Winchester on 9 and 10 September 2016. The third and final workshop will take place in Greenwich in spring 2017. 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.
