Project Title:
Irish Imperial Networks: Migration, Social Communication and Exchange in British South and Southeast Asia, c.1780-1922

Project Description:
This project examines Irish imperial networks in British South and Southeast Asia. It argues that Ireland was a crucial sub-imperial centre that provided a significant amount of the raw manpower, intellectual and financial capital that fuelled Britain's drive into Asia during the second phase of imperial expansion from the 1780's onwards.
