Conferencing the International
Conferencing the International offers a study of the failed India Round Table Talks (London, 1930-1932). The result of the talks, which included four female delegates from India, laid the foundation for the Government of India Act (1935), and pioneered the fusion of international conferencing with late-colonial negotiations of state sovereignty. These guided and shaped the British Empire’s reluctant path to decolonization.
With seating charts of the delegates, timelines, primary source coverage, including contemporary short films, and links to additional readings, this site serves as an in-depth case study of early 20th century decolonization efforts. Conferencing the International may be of particular interest to IB 20th century History students and undergraduates specializing in political history and international relations.
