Professor Richard Bell leads UMD-Spring Break trip to London

Professor Richard Bell led a group of students to London to study the people, places and policies that shaped the development of the British Empire, the single largest trans-cultural phenomenon in the world since 1500.  During visits to political and cultural sites in London, students examine how ideology, migration, technology and resistance shaped the expansion and eventual retrenchment of British imperial power in the Atlantic world and the Indian sub-continent.  With the naiton's capital as our classroom, you will explore the complex workins and legacies of the Britsh Empire from the perspective of its nerve center.
