Liverpool University to explore historic relationship between India and Britain
Liverpool (U.K.), June 25(ANI): An international event, led by the University of Liverpool and hosted by the British Library, London, will bring researchers to explore how encounters between Britain and India in the 16th and 17th centuries may have shaped the art, culture, education, and politics of both nations.
The event, titled Renaissance Old Worlds: English encounters from the Levant to the Far East, will witness researchers from the UK, the US, Europe, India and Taiwan coming together to present their work about the culture, heritage, and politics of Britain and other nations from travel literature, written by early English explorers to India and other nations.
The researchers will also look at manuscripts and archive records detailing the more personal accounts of those involved in the East India Company, and ordinary workers travelling to South Asia and the East for trading purposes.
The aim of the conference is to develop an international network of researchers to further understanding of Britain's relationship with Asia and the Middle East, and how the past can help shape future projects in arts, heritage, politics, and education.
Dr Nandini Das, from the University of Liverpool's School of English, and organiser of the event, said, "This was a foundational period when England was making its first formal political and mercantile contacts with what it saw as the real superpowers of the 'old world', such as the Ottoman and Mughal empires. The Renaissance Old Worlds conference, which will bring together archivists and researchers from a number of disciplines and a number of countries, will provide us with a unique opportunity to understand this period."
The event will start from Friday, (June 29) and last till Monday (July 1). (ANI)
