We are in search of a third panelist and commentator for the Birmingham British Studies Workshop (July 2-3, 2015). The panel will center on contests over responsibility in crisis. Caroline's work deals with British involvement with foreign refugees, while Christienna’s work examines local, regional, and imperial assistance to Jamaicans in crisis in the 19th and 20th centuries. There are any number of directions the panel can take depending on the interests of the third participant.

A one-day conference at the Institute of Historical Research, Friday 10th April 2015
Working with Robert Morrison, a doctoral candidate at the University of Colorado, I am putting together a panel for the 2016 AHA conference in Atlanta on the theme of “Global Whiteness”. My own research focuses on Irish nationalists and their attempts to prove that the Irish was a properly white nation. Robert Morrison’s research, focusing on the Bandung Conference (1955), investigates how Gamal ‘Abd al-Nasser sought to balance his new found role as a leader of the predominantly black ‘Third World’ with a countervailing belief that the Egyptians were a respectably white nation.
