The British World Conference III will be hosted by the Australian Centre and the Department of History at the University of Melbourne, Australia in July 2004. It follows the successes of the recent cycle of British World Conferences in Cape Town (2002) and Calgary (2003).
The conference cycle is based on the assumption that, from the colonial period into the twentieth century, the British imperial world was held together not merely by ties of trade and defence, but by a shared sense of British identity, which linked British communities - especially those in the 'Old Dominions' - around the globe.
The conference will be held at the University of Melbourne, 2-4 July 2004. To register visit: http://www.australian.unimelb.edu.au/britishworld/index.html
