CHANGE OF DATE for Dr Rosie Llewellyn-Jones’ lecture on ‘Empire Building’

Dr Rosie Llewellyn-Jones’ lecture on
‘Empire Building’
at the East India Club
The change has been necessitated by the planned rail strike on the original date, 31 May.

Illustrated lecture by Dr Rosie Llewellyn-Jones on her recent publication Empire Building: The Construction of British India 1690-1860, with drinks and dinner at the East India Club, 16 St James’ Square, London SW1Y 4LH, on Tuesday, 20 June.

Dr Llewellyn-Jones, who is the editor of BACSA’s journal Chowkidar, looks at the wide-ranging impact of the East India Company and its engineers on the built and rural environment of India. Her latest book follows numerous publications on Indians and the British during the period of British rule.
We will meet from 6 pm for drinks (cash bar) in the East India Room, with its rich collection of portraits, before the illustrated lecture at 6.30 pm in the Hogarth Room. A three course dinner with coffee will follow in the East India Room. Signed copies of the book will be available to buy.
