Readers Research: Indians and Britain

Readers Research events are an opportunity to find out how researchers use the vast collections of the British Library.

Kate Smith, a Research Fellow on The East India Company at Home 1757-1857 project, examines the British country house in a global context. Here she reveals how Asian trading connections impacted on British material culture as company officials returned home with vast fortunes.

As part of the project Making Britain: South Asian Visions of Home and Abroad, Research Fellow Florian Stadtler and his colleagues used archival research to investigate how the early South Asian community positioned itself within British society and impacted on British life. They will be in conversation with Dr Susheila Nasta, Professor of Modern Literature, The Open University.
