Oxford and Empire now a TORCH Network

Rhodes House Zimbabwe Bird

We are pleased to announce that from January 2020, the Oxford and Empire Project will be part of a University of Oxford-wide TORCH Network, aptly called 'Oxford and Empire'.  TORCH (The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities) brings together researchers across the Humanities Division and beyond at the University of Oxford.  

The Oxford and Empire interdisciplinary network will provide a central hub and site for research and discussion of the legacies of colonialism in Oxford, including research on imperialism conducted by Oxford scholars.  It includes researchers in Archaeology, English, Geography, History, the Pitt Rivers Museum, the History of Science Museum, individual colleges, and beyond.  

Events, including a workshop to feature the range of research and resources available across Oxford, will be announced shortly.
