Event Details

In Conversation: Making a British Nation and Empire

24 January 2013, 19:00

Ondaatje Wing Theatre

Tickets: £5/£4

Professor Catherine Hall and Dr Caroline Bressey discuss representations of the Empire in the nineteenth century – from Sierra Leone to India and beyond.

Professor Hall’s research focuses on re-thinking the relation between Britain and its empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She is particularly interested in the ways in which empire impacted upon metropolitan life, how the empire was lived 'at home', and how English identities, both masculine and feminine, were constituted in relation to the 'others' of the empire.  Her new book, Macaulay and Son: Writing Home, Nation and Empire focuses on the significance of the Macaulays, father and son, in defining the parameters of nation and empire in the early nineteenth century. Professor Hall is the Principal Investigator of the ESRC-funded project Legacies of British Slave Ownership.
