Sathnam Sanghera’s ground-breaking Empireland revealed how Empire continues to shape life in Britain today. Now he returns to How To Academy, in a launch event for Empireworld, to tell scientist and broadcaster Adam Rutherford how the British Empire shaped the rest of the world. Sathnam travelled the globe tracing Empire’s international legacies – from Barbados and Mauritius to India and Nigeria and beyond. In this live event, he’ll show us just how deeply British imperialism is baked into our world. And why it’s time Britain was finally honest with itself about empire. Books are supplied by Primrose Hill Books and can be picked up and signed at the event.
