The Rutgers British Studies Center (RBSC) supports a rich variety of programming--lectures, conferences, seminars, workshops, and roundtable--dedicated to the interdisciplinary analysis of British history and culture. The center's work is broad in chronological scope and geographical sweep, ranging from the Early Middle Ages to the present and from the local to the global. Chronologically, we aim to investigate conventional boundaries between tradition and modernity, feudalism and capitalism, the imperial and the post-imperial, the neoclassical and the post-romantic, and the modern and the postmodern. Geographically, we inquire into relations between regions and nations within the British Isles and within the British Empire, between Britain and Europe, and between imperial and post-imperial Britain and the rest of the world. Methodologically, the center seeks to understand what sort of knowledge the traditional divisions between academic disciplines promote and what sort they preclude so that our interdisciplinary projects in scholarship and teaching may be guided by an informed sense of purpose. Our aim is to encourage not a quest for a dubious unity of method but a series of intellectual encounters and engagements, producing friction as much as consensus and stimulating both productive disagreements and transformative collaborations.
