POSTPONED - NEW DATE TBA Securing the Spanish Main: British Subjecthood and the Peace of 1763
21 May 2014.Wednesday, 12:00PM - 1:00PM Bryan Rosenblithe, Columbia University

This talk examines the ways that political, economic, and military contests in the Floridas and Honduras during the era of the Seven Years War shaped imperial notions of British subjecthood. It also explores how questions related to who counted as a subject influenced British strategic thinking during a time of widely perceived Bourbon revanchism.
