 ‘Approaching British Colonial History During the Culture War’, Professor Corinne Fowler

In this lecture, Professor Fowler addressed the origins and impacts of Britain’s current culture war. She considered how those working on British colonial history – students, activists, academics, museum and heritage professionals – can respond effectively to these fraught public discussions. Her talk draws on her public history work on the project ‘Colonial Countryside: National Trust Houses Reinterpreted’ and her forthcoming book, The Countryside: Ten Walks Through Colonial Britain (Penguin Allen Lane, 2023).
