Join us for our second episode of A Very Brief Introduction to the British Empire, highlighting British colonisation in the Atlantic Ocean.

Historian Paula Larsson outlines the British settlement of Ireland, North America, and the Caribbean from the Tudor era to the mid-18th century. An overview of imperial terminology and British tactics for maintaining power are discussed alongside the major population changes and the Atlantic slave trade.

The content for this episode is based on a public lecture given in a local pub in the city of Oxford, back in October 2019. The content is tailored for a non-specialist audience who is interested in learning more about the legacies of the British Empire.

This podcast is run by Uncomfortable Oxford and will feature bi-weekly releases of our public lecture series on the history of the British Empire. Uncomfortable Oxford is run by Doctoral students at the University of Oxford and aims to raise awareness and discourse about 'uncomfortable' issues in the modern world.
