Our next Alumni Evening will take place on Monday 5 June at 6:30 for 7pm. The evening will commence with wine and finger food followed by a short talk by Professor Stephen Conway who will examine the Prime Minister's position on "Global Britain" and discuss how the choice between the nearby continent and the wider world as alternatives between which the British should chose is as false now as it was in the 18th Century.

There will be an opportunity for questions, networking and further drinks afterwards. 

These events are attended by alumni from all generations, as well as current and former staff and final year undergraduates, and booking is not required.  

We look forward to seeing you then!

Professor Stephen Conway

Professor Stephen Conway's main research interest is eighteenth-century Britain and Ireland, and particularly their place in the wider world. Stephen has published books on war, the state and society in Britain, Ireland and North America and on Britain and Ireland's relationship with continental Europe. He is now working on a project on the continental European contribution to Britain's empire in the eighteenth century, and European imperial collaboration in the same period.
