Event Details

The East India Company at Home: Private Fortunes, Public Histories

This lecture has two main purposes.  The first purpose is to discuss key findings from a three-year collaborative research project that explores the impact of the East India Company—the state-sanctioned monopoly that established Britain’s empire on the subcontinent—on English, Scottish and Welsh country houses in the 18th and 19th centuries.  The second purpose is to explore the ways in which collaborative academic history projects —conducted together with archivists, curators, family historians and organisations such as the National Trust—are changing how (and why) we do history in 21stcentury Britain.
