Location: Wilkins Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, UCL

Professor Finn will speak on 'The East India Company at Home: Private Fortunes, Public Histories'. 

The lecture will discuss key findings from a three-year collaborative research project that explores the impact of the East India Company — the state-sanctioned monopoly that established Britain’s empire on the subcontinent — on English, Scottish and Welsh country houses in the 18th and 19th centuries.  It will also explore the ways in which collaborative academic history projects — conducted together with archivists, curators, family historians and organisations such as the National Trust — are changing how (and why) we do history in 21st century Britain.  The lecture is free - book now.
