Dr John McAleer, Associate Professor in History, University of Southampton. The East India Company: The corporation that changed the world.
Dr McAleer’s work focuses on the British encounter and engagement with the wider world in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, situating the history of empire in its global and maritime contexts. Although other nations had companies similar to the East India Company, none had the geopolitical impact nor the wealth generation of The East India Company. As this lecture includes many detailed slides and maps, Dr McAleer thought a Zoom presentation was most appropriate.
