Obituary: Remembering Alun Howkins, 1947–2018 here.





New Books in British Studies is currently seeking hosts interested in conducting interviews with authors of new books on Britain and its empire. Hosting the channel is a good way to bring the work of scholars of Britain and its empire to the attention of large audiences. Interested parties should write Marshall Poe.




Bentham’s Political Economy: ‘Happiness—enjoyment—not money, is or ought to be the ultimate object of the legislator’s care’.

A conference exploring the seminal economic thought of philosopher and reformer Jeremy Bentham, to be held at UCL on 16 –17 December 2019

The philosopher and reformer Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832) is celebrated as both the founder of classical utilitarianism and a profound theorist of law. Despite his seminal treatment of rationality as cost–benefit analysis, and his recognition of the phenomenon of diminishing marginal utility however, he is often either overlooked altogether in histories of economic thought, or relegated to the status of a footnote. The Bentham Project and UCL Faculty of Laws are therefore delighted to be hosting a conference, to be held on 16–17 December 2019, on Bentham’s Political Economy.

draft programme for the conference can be found below, or downloaded in PDF format. Please visit the conference Eventbrite page for more details and to register.











​Call for Articles - Antisemitism in Britain and Ireland
Antisemitism Studies welcomes the submission of manuscripts that contribute to the scholarly study of antisemitism. To see our upcoming second issue, click here.
We will consider articles on specific antisemitic episodes and their historical significance and impact on society, as well as more thematic and theoretical studies of the phenomenon. Authors may work from any disciplinary perspective, address any cultural, national, or religious context, and study any period of history, including the present. At this time, we are particularly interested in articles that address antisemitism in Britain and in Ireland.

Antisemitism Studies adheres to a double–blind peer review process in which the identities of the author and reviewers remain confidential. Please note that the formal evaluation process on all submissions takes anywhere between one and three months, and the period between acceptance of an article and its publication is between six months and one year. 
Please visit our website for further information.
Any questions about the journal or its submissions process may be directed to the editor.




On this day in history





On Google Books, there are 105,000,000 British History secondary sources and some primary ones.

The new date will be 5-7pm on FRIDAY 6th DECEMBER







Collecting and Collections: Digital Lives and Afterlives Workshop
The Royal Society
6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG
14-15 November 2019
The shift from the disordered Kunstkammer or curiosity cabinet of the Renaissance to the ordered Enlightenment museum is well known. What has to be explored fully is the process through which this transformation occurred. Collective Wisdom, funded by an AHRC International Networking Grant, explores how and why members of the Royal Society, the Society of Antiquaries of London and the Leopoldina (in Halle, Germany) collected specimens of the natural world, art, and archaeology in the 17th and 18th centuries.

In three international workshops, we are analysing the connections between these scholarly organisations, natural philosophy, and antiquarianism, and to what extent these networks shaped the formation of early museums and their categorisation of knowledge.

Workshop III, concerning the afterlives, use and reconstruction of early modern collections is designed to benefit scholars interested in digital humanities.

We will explore digital approaches to survey collections over time, assisted by the Royal Society-Google Cultural Institute partnership. How can we data-mine and use tools to integrate extant databases? How did the norms of early modern academies of scientific journal publication, priority of discovery and ‘matters of fact’ shape the organisation of knowledge? How do we consider those early modern models in digital reconstructions of early collecting?

Speakers include:

Min Chen (Oxford), Mary-Ann Constantine (Wales), Natasha David (Google), Michelle DiMeo (Hagley), Louisianne Ferlier (The Royal Society), Rainer Godel (Leopoldina), Rob Iliffe (Oxford), Neil Johnston (TNA), Suhair Khan (Google), Nigel Leask (Glasgow), Miranda Lewis (Oxford), Alice Marples (Oxford), Alessio Mattana (Turin), Julianne Nyhan (UCL), Torsten Roeder (Leopoldina), Anna Marie Roos (Lincoln), Giacomo Savani (University College Dublin), Cornelis Schilt (Oxford), Tom Scott (Wellcome), Aron Sterk (Lincoln), Matthew Symonds (CELL, UCL).

£100 registration fee, full (includes lunches, coffees and music concert)
£50 registration fee, students and concessions (includes lunches, coffees and music concert)
Registration, programme, and abstracts here
Free registration for music concert following the workshop

Please note that reviews, CFPs, news,etc. include only those that explicitly concern historical scholarship on Britain.  So, there are no reviews here of books on Spanish history. Also there are no notices of conferences on the Holocaust [even those being held in the U.K.]  Obviously, non-British history topics will be relevant and of interest to historians of Britain but it falls outside the purview of this website.
