I am looking to put together a panel on Imperial Borderlands in the British Empire in the 19th Century for the North American British Studies Conference in Providence RI, in October 2018. My own paper is on Sir Alexander Burnes's _Travels into Bokhara_ (1835); but I would welcome papers on Central Asia, Northern India, Africa, China, Persia, the Middle East, or other contact zones in the world just outside British Imperial reach at the time. Please send detailed abstracts of 500 words by March 1, 2018.
