Writing Wales into the empire
Rhetoric, fragments – and beyond?
in Wales and the British overseas empire
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The tendency in Welsh writing on connections with the empire was for occasional detailed work, which was not made into any patterned argument and remained as isolated fragments. This remains largely the case, though the fragments get much bigger and better. Perhaps there was a problem of finding sufficient evidence to go with the rhetoric. The historiography can be divided into three broad periods since the emergence of history as a professional subject in Wales, which means from the early twentieth century. The first period runs from 1890 to 1950, and embraces the work of historians mainly born between 1850 and 1900. The second historiographical period starts after the Second World War. After 1950, and through to the mid-1980s, the study of modern history accelerated in Wales and became perhaps the main focus of the work of Welsh historians.
