Wales and the World: Cynefin, Colonialism and Global Interconnections
This conference will situate the history of Wales within global and colonial contexts.
The conference invites proposals for papers that engage with current issues and debates in historiography and public policy alike.
On one hand, the conference aims to expand upon recent scholarship which has cast new light on Wales’s connections to imperialism and transatlantic slavery. On the other, it will encourage discussions about how Welsh national history and identity is understood and taught. The conference is animated by the findings of a 2021 report chaired by Charlotte Williams which led to BAME histories being formally incorporated in the Curriculum for Wales.Wales and the World: Cynefin, Colonialism and Global Interconnections | RHS (royalhistsoc.org)
