This conference will bring together a number of leading scholars of imperial history, in order to offer new perspectives on the early phase in the development of the British empire. Outlining the fruits of the most recent research in this field, the speakers will address the economic, social, religious and political contexts and motivations for British imperial expansion during the long eighteenth century, as well as British perceptions of other European empires, and ideas about the nature of the early British empire in both metropole and colonies.
