Session Description:

In the wake of the 250th anniversary of the Seven Years' War, considered by many as the first worldwide war, we would like to open a discussion of war and literature. On both the continent of North America and the Indian subcontinent, war for empire among the European nations swept away first nations, redrew boundaries, and inflected communal identities.


Subject:

  • British Literature – Late Eighteenth Century
