New resources on trial: Empire Online, and Church Missionary Society Periodicals

The Library has trial access to these two resources from Adam Matthew until April 13th 2021.

Empire Online brings together manuscript, printed and visual primary source materials for the study of ‘Empire’ and its theories, practices and consequences. The materials span across the last five centuries, and are accompanied by secondary learning resources, including scholarly essays, maps and an interactive chronology.”

Church Missionary Society Periodicals encompasses publications from the CMS, the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society, and the latterly integrated South American Missionary Society. Documenting missionary work from the nineteenth to the twenty-first century, the periodicals include news, journals and reports, offering a unique perspective on global history and cultural encounters.”
