Imperial City: Bristol in the World

This event has now passed.

Date: 20 September - 21 September 2013
Venue: M Shed, Bristol
Time: 9:30 - 17:00


This conference re-examines the role of the Empire and the Imperial past in the Bristol region's history, from the part it played in the Imperial ambitions of earlier powers Romans, Saxons or Normans, to its influence on British expansion in later years.

The conference is organised by the Regional History Centre, UWE, Bristol, and M Shed, Bristol.

We re-consider the importance of trade narratives - of the very idea of the historic port city as a 'gateway to empire' - but we also explore other factors in Britain's making as a world power, and Bristol's as a world city.
