About:

This workshop intends to bring together research scholars of history and affiliated fields working on transnational networks fostered through the British Empire. We wish to focus on how certain forms of the ‘empire’, the ‘colony’, and the ‘outside’ mutually constituted each other. Such an approach, we believe, could illumine the dense transnational convergences that shape the political, the economic, the social, and the cultural in various locations simultaneously. The workshop seeks papers that engage both conceptually and historically with themes that broadly include, but are not limited to:

  1. Transnational linkages that focus on the circulation of ideas, practices, things, goods, capital, technologies and people and the politics surrounding them – between colonies of the empire but also outside of it.
  2. The constitution of transnational discourses on religious, cultural, economic and
    political networks and the specificities of their reception/refraction in colonial,
    metropolitan and non/extra colonial contexts.
  3. Transnational circulation of material, cultural, literary and scientific practices within the
    empire and the ways in which they shaped local identities, disciplines, and
    institutional politics in various locations.
  4. The lives and afterlives of local/national entities – art, objects, literature – as they move
    into transnational space and how these movements interrupt earlier meanings and
    produce/reconstitute new ones.

How to Submit:

Please send us an abstract of up to 400 words, along with a brief CV at warwicktransnational@gmail.com by 20 Feb 2018. We particularly welcome the participation of advanced doctoral students and early career scholars. The workshop would follow a format of paper presentations, interspersed with a roundtable on methodology and keynote lecture/s.

There will be limited bursaries available for students from developing countries with little/no institutional funding. The event is free and open to all.
