Threads of Empire: Rule and resistance in colonial India

At Weston Gallery


To coincide with the 70th anniversary of India gaining independence, this exhibition explores the rise of the British Empire in India between 1740 and 1840. Based on Manuscripts & Special Collections at The University of Nottingham's extensive archives on colonial India, ‘Threads of Empire’ examines the history of tense negotiation, resistance and rebellion that lay behind the emergence of India as the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of the British Empire.
