IAS Vulnerability Seminar: Vulnerability and post-imperial identities

by Andrew Gardner (Institute of Archaeology, UCL)

Vulnerability and post imperial identities

20 March 2018

This talk discussed the impact of the demise of the British empire upon identities within the UK in the narrow majority for the Leave campaign in the 2016 UK referendum on EU membership.

A comparative dimension was also pursued, with analysis of the Roman empire - which inspired many aspects of British imperialism - shedding further light on the politics of identity in colonial and post-colonial contexts.
