in Royals on tour


We would like to acknowledge with gratitude funding from the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry (SOPHI) at the University of Sydney, which made possible a conference on royal tours held in 2015; several of the chapters in this volume have been developed from papers initially presented at that conference. Robert Aldrich also acknowledges a Discovery Grant from the Australian Research Council that has been invaluable in work on European and indigenous monarchies in the colonial age.

Our thanks go to the contributors to this volume, and to others who participated in our conference (some of whose work will appear in a special issue of the Royal Studies Journal on royal tours of British Dominions in the twentieth century), to Briony Neilson for her sterling work in putting together the manuscript, to Nicholas Keyzer for scanning several images reproduced here, to Trevor Matthews for preparing the index, to Bruce Baskerville for assistance in checking the page-proofs and to Emma Brennan at Manchester University Press for her encouragement with this and our other projects.
