China historians have often presented the First Opium War as a series of diplomatic, military, commercial, and cultural conflicts between Britain and China. In contrast, this talk looks at one “inner” aspect of the war, namely the rule of the British Expedition over China’s littoral regions subject to occupation and blockade, thereby shedding light on British imperialism in modern China.

This talk is part of the Wolfson College Lunchtime Seminar Series - Wednesdays of Full Term series.
