Many H-ALBION members will, I feel sure, be sorry to hear that JFC (John) Harrison died earlier this week. He would have been 97 next month.

I'd like to put together a panel on topics related to education, identity, and the British Empire. My research examines the complicated relationship between Canadian and Australian educators and the ideal of Britishness in the mid-20th century. This panel could embrace a wide array of topics engaging issues of identity and education across Britain and the British Empire in the modern world.
