Jo-Ann Curtis (Birmingham Museums Trust), Jane Gallagher (Ironbridge Gorge Museums), Duncan Frankis (Newman University) and Manu Sehgal (University of Birmingham) will be joining us for a roundtable discussion on the place of the eighteenth-century Midlands in wider global and imperial histories, and how we explore and interpret those connections in our local heritage today.
