Biography


John McAleer Curator of Imperial and Maritime History

My PhD thesis focused on the representation of landscape, exploration and empire in 18th- and early-19th-century Southern Africa. Following the completion of my doctorate, I developed interests in Atlantic history, focusing on the slave trade, abolition, and British missionary and military involvement in the Caribbean and Canada.

Areas of research and interest My research focuses on the British encounter and engagement with the wider world in the 18th and 19th centuries. Specific areas of interest include:

Recently, I have been working on military and scientific networks in Britain’s Indian Ocean World. I am also co-editing a collection of essays on the subject of Curating Empire: Museums and the British Imperial Experience.

•British naval, military and missionary activity in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.

•The British presence in the Southern Atlantic and Indian Oceans, especially the Cape of Good Hope and St Helena. •Slave trades, slavery and their suppression.

•The Royal Navy and empire. •The public recognition and commemoration of British naval and military figures and campaigns museums; collecting and their relationship to empire.
