Dr Helen Clifford, Senior Research Fellow on the project ‘East India Company at Home 1757 – 1857’ at UCL (Department of History), talks about the objects the project team are studying, specifically Chinese Wallpaper.
The East India Company at Home, 1757-1857 was a 3-year Leverhulme Trust-funded research project based in the Department of History at the University of Warwick (2011-2012) and University College London (2012-2014). The project was funded by the Leverhulme Trust and ended in August 2014. Over three years the core project team and over 300 project associates worked together to examine the British country house in an imperial and global context.
Professor Finn will continue to blog (and tweet) about developments connected with the project and themes related to colonial material cultures. Have questions? Contact:
