This is the first episode of our final module of this series: Unmaking Empire? The last module begins with a lecture on the Inter-war period, providing a comprehensive look at the historical moment often labelled as the 'height' of the British Empire. Yet, when you look deeper into the structure of the empire in this period, you begin to see the cracks in power that had begun to form across the globe.
Historian Jan Tattenberg provides an enlightening overview of these cracks, from Irish resistance and Indian independence movements, to the brutal supressions orchestrated by British officials in their attempts to maintain a grasp on their place in the world order.
The content for this episode is based on a lecture live-streamed on our Facebook page on August 02nd, 2020. The information is aimed at a non-specialist audience who is interested in learning more about the legacies of the British Empire.
This podcast is run by Uncomfortable Oxforda social enterprise run by doctoral students at the University of Oxford that aims to raise awareness and discourse about 'uncomfortable' issues in the modern world.
