The Summer Scholars programme highlights the work that they have done during their residency in the British Library, bringing the latest research related to the North Americas collections to a public audience.

MONDAY 22 AUGUST The Centre for Conservation Foyle Room
‘Put all to fire and sword’
Nicola Martin compares and contrasts the experiences and encounters of various groups of ‘others’, and considers pacification in the eighteenth-century British Empire from Culloden to Quebec.

Britain and the Anglo-American War of 1812
The 1812 Anglo-American War may be the most overlooked conflict in British history. Peter O’Connor explores the domestic impact of the war with a particular focus on the response of radical democrats within Britain who had held up the USA as a model political system since the Revolution.
