"IMPERIAL GLOBALISATION? TRADE, TECHNOLOGIES, AND TRANSNATIONALITIES WITHIN THE BRITISH EMPIRE FROM THE 18TH TO THE 20TH CENTURY"
10th - 11th September 2004 @ British Empire and Commonwealth Museum, Bristol
This is the first conference that explicitly sets out to explore the concept of globalisation in a historical context. Between the 18th and 20th centuries, the expansion of the British empire in particualr, played a hugely significant part in promoting increaslngly complex exchanges, relationships, and interconnections between different territories, peoples, and parts of the world.
Papers will explore inter-realted developments in both metrople and colonies, and will focus on issues such as speed tecjnologies, ports and transnational networks, diasporas of ideas, cinema and entertainment, commodities and consumption. The conference is jointly organised with the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum, Bristol.
