This year sees the twentieth anniversary of the ‘Studies in Imperialism’ series, edited by Professor John Mackenzie and published by Manchester University Press. The series, which now comprises some fifty titles, has played a major role in developing new approaches to the history of ‘imperial Britain’, bringing together a wide variety of scholars from across the humanities. Here at Southampton the Centre for the Study of Britain and its Empire is marking the occasion with a one-day symposium on the series, the impact it has made on the historiography of the British empire and the study of colonialism, and the current state of play in the subject. The symposium will celebrate and critically evaluate the series, and also show-case some of the inter-disciplinary work which Southampton scholars have been doing in related fields. Professor Mackenzie himself will be attending, and Manchester University Press will be providing support for the event.
