English Diaspora Project

Posted on July 6, 2011

CLAW UK Associate Director David Gleeson is happy to announce a new project at Northumbria University entitled Locating the Hidden Diaspora: The English in North America in Transatlantic Perspective, 1760-1950‘.  The project, which is led by Professor Don MacRaild, Dr Tanja Bueltmann and Dr David Gleeson, argues that the existence of English cultural communities in North America has been largely ignored by traditional historians who see the English as assimilating into Anglo-American culture without any need to overtly express a separate English ethnicity.  Please visit the project’s website or check out this article for more information.
