I’m seeking co-conspirators on a panel proposal for the Vancouver NACBS meeting (15-18 November). I envision a panel that examines various ways in which the Empire prominently figures in contemporary British politics, society, and/or culture. My own contribution will focus on the Empire in the politics of official regret, 1995-present - an examination of the recent vogue for apologies and near-apologies for various imperial misdeeds (both within and far beyond living memory).

 

Please email me: Phil Harling, harling@uky.edu with your paper idea and a short CV.
