Included here are recordings of the final discussion session at the Objects, Families, Homes: British Material Cultures in Global Context conference, which took place at UCL on 11-12 July 2014. The conference was held to mark the end of the Leverhulme Trust-funded East India Company at Home, 1757-1857 project and the final session encouraged all delegates to participate in an open discussion about the project, its challenges, achievements and future possibilities.
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:
