Concentration: British Empire

Advisor: Patrick McDevitt

I am interested in the role the environment played in shaping the policies of the British Empire. Hunters, mountain climbers, businessmen, and activists all had a stake in the outcome of these decisions.  My research explores how varied interest groups sought to influence the way that Britain interacted with the territories it governed.
