Latest blog by Hannah Dennett - Intimacy and Mobility in Empire: Black Experiences and the Metropole
In the second blog accompanying the At Home In Empire: Colonial Experiences of Intimacy and Mobility conference, Hannah Dennett examines how the records of the Foundling Hospital can highlight black experiences of intimacy and mobility in eighteenth-century London.
Latest blog by Liz Egan - At Home in Empire? Whiteness and Jamaica in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries
To accompany the At Home in Empire: Colonial Experiences of Intimacy and Mobility conference, HRC doctoral fellows Hannah Dennett and Liz Egan will be writing a blog reflecting on their own research, the themes of the conference, and the practicalities of putting together an interdisciplinary event. In the first part of this series, Liz explores how the themes of home and mobility interact with her PhD research ‘Constructing and Challenging Creole Whiteness in Jamaica, 1865-1938’.
The HRC now has two book series showcasing the best current work in the faculty.
Warwick Series in the Humanities (with Routledge)
This series will publish the varied and multidisciplinary outcomes of the projects funded by the HRC.
We hope those receiving funding from the HRC (including doctoral fellowship conferences) will seriously consider publication in this series. In addition, the Series will accept proposals from the Faculty community in general, with the proviso that any such proposals are interdisciplinary.
Warwick Studies (with Anthem Press)
This is a new series that partners the HRC with Anthem Press, a small independent publisher offering a high quality list aimed at the academic community. Unlike the Warwick Series in the Humanities which is explicitly inter-disciplinary, the Warwick Studies will have more of a discipline-specific focus, and thus will be marketed as Warwick Studies in Literature, Warwick Studies in History etc.
