The 'St John's and the Colonial Past' project explores connections between St John's College, Oxford, and colonialism, uncovering benefactions to St John's and the alumni who served in the empire.  It will also investigate the monuments, objects, pictures and buildings that evoke the colonial past.  The research will feed into a report and other scholarly publications and a series of workshops will be held to discuss the findings and to plan responses. The project provides an opportunity for postgraduate historians of empire, slavery, and education to contribute to the debate on decolonisation.
