With issues of race, religion, nationhood and immigration increasingly drawn upon by politicians and other public figures to make sense of a changed and changing Britain, the question ‘how did we get here?’ needs to be asked. SPEAKERS BILL SCHWARZ Professor of English at Queen Mary University, London. Bill is the author of The White Man’s World, winner of the 2013 Longman/History Today Book Prize and the first volume in ‘Memories of Empire’: a series which explores the afterlife that empire possessed in English politics and culture in the years after imperial rule had vanished. ROBERT GILDEA Professor of Modern History at Worcester College, Oxford. Robert’s research is characterised by its transnational qualities, and attention to collective memory and political culture. He is currently writing a comparative history on the legacies of empire in France and Britain between 1940 and the present, provisionally titled Empires of the Mind. KARAN KATOCH Postgraduate student undertaking research at the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies at Oxford. Karan’s thesis explores how Section 377, imposed on British India in 1860, continues to prohibit and inhibit LGBTQ visibility in India’s diaspora today. Karan is interested in selective memory: how elements of history are made invisible in the process of emigration.
