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.
















ONLINE: Renaissance Academic Drama and the Popular Stage 11th-12th June 2020
Hosted by University of St Andrews

Keynote speakers: Prof Laurie Maguire (Oxford) and Prof Sarah Knight (Leicester)

With talks and screenings of performances directed by Prof Elisabeth Dutton (Fribourg) and Perry Mills (Edward’s Boys). Scholarship on early modern drama often keeps the research areas of academic and popular drama separate, when focusing on the relationship between them would greatly improve our understanding of the subject. This conference will consider further the convergence of these traditions by hosting academic work relevant to either, or with a particular focus on their interaction. The conference is interdisciplinary, being organised by the University of St Andrew's School of English in collaboration with the School of Classics. This association is particularly relevant to the topic of the conference, and mirrors the significant connections between ancient and early modern drama that developed through translation, adaptation, and imitation.
The conference will take place online on 11th-12th June. Registration is free. To register and for more information, please send email.



On this day in history





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

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.
