Prof Miles Ogborn
My research is concerned with understanding the relationships between power, space and knowledge in a range of mainly eighteenth-century contexts. My work has dealt with the new geographies of eighteenth-century London, and trying to understand them as Spaces of Modernity. It has also investigated the ways in which the English East India Company used a variety of forms of writing to construct a global trading network and territorial empire in India from 1600 to 1800. I am currently researching the relationship between empire and speech in the Caribbean.
