I’m looking for co-conspirators on a panel proposal for the NACBS meeting in Vancouver (November 2019). The panel would focus on ways in which the Empire figures in contemporary British politics, society, and/or culture. My paper would be: “Sorry Situations: The British Empire in the politics of official regret, 1995 to the present.”
