This network plans to hold a conference on the 22-23rd June 2022, of which selected papers will be published as conference proceedings. Papers can be presented in person in Edinburgh, or remotely, and will address the following themes:

  • Empire and Heritage Policy
  • Expanding Narratives of Imperial Legacies within Community
  • Recognising Slavery in our Built Environment

We are keen to invite speakers from inside and outside of academia, and those working within the above themes in Scotland, or anywhere in the world. We hope that cross national conversations can be held within this conference to promote shared experiences and learning.

Conference proceedings from selected papers will be published by Edinburgh University Press in 2023.

Please email proposal submissions of 500 words (max), along with a short personal resume of 300 words to:

Deadline for proposals is 14th April 2022. Confirmation will be sent out to speakers in late April.
