Macaulay and Son: an imperial story

Professor Catherine Hall (UCL)
28 November 2011


Zachary Macaulay, the father, Thomas Babington Macaulay, the son. One a leading abolitionist, the other a great historian: both men were shaped, albeit differently, by experiences of empire.  How did each imagine the nation and its relation to empire? How significant were their visions and what are their legacies?
