Three-year project grant

• Award Winner: Don MacRaild (pictured), Tanja Bueltmann and David Gleeson

• Institution: Northumbria University

• Value: £268,000

Locating the hidden diaspora: The English in North America in transatlantic perspective, 1760-1950

The researchers working on this project argue that English cultural communities in North America have been largely ignored by traditional historians who have long taken the view that the English assimilate into the local culture without any need to overtly express a separate English ethnicity. Initial research has found that the English were distinctly aware of being an ethnic group within emerging settlements on the continent. The project intends to take a fresh look at English ethnicity using a vast variety of untapped sources, including manuscripts and newspaper articles from this period.
