Save event

After 2019 in Kansas City, US, and 2021 online, Britain and the World returns to the UK: Wednesday 15 to Friday 17 June 2022 at the University of Plymouth. This is, in effect, the 2020 conference, postponed for obvious reasons by two years.

Our plenary speakers are Claire Jowitt (UEA) and Stuart Ward (University of Copenhagen). The conference will also feature John M MacKenzie as we launch his festschrift, 'The MacKenzie Moment and Imperial History', and 12 other books published in our series with Palgrave Macmillan since we last met.

Palgrave History's commissioning editor will be at the conference. The editor of the journal 'Britain and the World' will also be present, and both book series and journal editors would be very happy to discuss proposals and submissions to each.

The conference hub – where the publishers will be based, and where lunch and refreshments will be served – is the Sherwell Centre, a converted church on the University campus, with parallel and plenary sessions in the Portland Square Building next door.

The conference icebreaker will be held on the Tuesday evening in Sutton Harbour, ten minutes' walk from the hotel; a welcome reception will follow on the Wednesday; the Conference Dinner on the Thursday will be at the magnificent Stonehouse Barracks which overlooks Plymouth Sound; and our traditional last-night outings downtown will be in and around the Barbican.

Updates regarding the conference will periodically be posted on the BATW website.

On Twitter our @britishscholar hashtag is #BATW2022.
