Add a talk


This one-day workshop will explore the history of public office in Britain and its eastern empire, from the sixteenth to the end of the nineteenth centuries. The aim is to examine how, why and in what ways notions of public office evolved over time and space, and relate these to ideas about corruption, state formation, and values such as integrity, impartiality and the public interest. Besides papers from historians with expertise in different periods and types of public office, there will also be contributions from a sociologist, an anthropologist and a legal scholar.
