Linda Colley: "Going Native, Telling Tales: Captivities and Collaborations in an Age of Empire"

Bliss Carnochan Visitor

Linda Colley is Richard M. Colgate Professor of History at Yale University. Her current research is on British and Irish men and women who were taken captive and/or changed sides in three zones of imperial conquest: the North African coast, North America and Southern India (c. 1600-c. 1800). Her research has spanned the breadth of modern British history, from the Tory Party in the 18th century to the concerns and effects of empire reaching into the present day, and currently involves European expansion into India and other colonies, exploring the clash of cultures and issues of colonial identity in the subcontinent and other regions.
