The next British World Conference will be held in Bristol in 2007 and will be jointly hosted by the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England, Bristol. The opening keynote will be held at the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum and delegates will have a chance to visit the museum, its exhibits and archival collections. The principal objective of the 2007 conference is to take stock of what has been done since the first conference held in London in 1998, provide new research agendas, and most importantly define what is meant by the 'British World'.
Keynote speakers include: P J Marshall (London); Saul Dubow (Sussex); Andrew Thompson (Leeds); John Darwin (Oxford); Antoinette Burton (Illinois); and Bill Waiser (Saskatchewan).
