The Institute for Historical Studies at the University of Texas at Austin welcomes you to:
“1763 and All That: Temptations of Empire in the British World in the Decade After the Seven Years' War”
February 25-26, 2010
The University of Texas at Austin Campus
The symposium explores the British Empire during its "decade of crisis" between the end of the Seven Years' War in 1763 and the passage of the Tea Act ten years later. While invaluable work has been done to examine British and indigenous relations and exchanges in specific colonial contexts, as well as to examine connections between the metropolis and specific colonial regions, this conference aims to interrogate the links across and between the colonial regions and to set developments in particular regions into the context of the transformation of the British Empire as a whole. We will bring scholars working on various aspects of the British World into dialogue and debate over the causes and character of the imperial transformation of the 1760s and early 1770s.
