Where is British History Now? A Seminar Organized by the Modern British History Network with CIDRAL
Over the past twenty years intellectual debate, politics and culture have questioned the status and some of the established methods of British history. How central should the British story be in the teaching of history? Is it productive to provincialize or de-centre Britain in the historical narratives we construct? What impact has recent research in environmental and cultural history had on this field? And is Brexit reshaping the national imaginary; is the ‘island story’ making a Conservative comeback? Come and discuss these issues with leading figures from Manchester History.
