History MA alumnus Bradley Dixon is making an impact as part of the University of Texas – Austin History PhD program. His work explores the colonial history of indigenous peoples of the Americas under British rule. Brad’s new insights into the nature of British American colonial rule challenge established models. As a result, in October, Brad was invited to present his views to a group of prominent legal historians at the Newberry Library Symposium on Comparative Modern Legal History.
Brad is one of the organizers of a forthcoming “Entangled Histories of the Early Modern British and Iberian Empires and their Successor Republics” workshop at the University of Texas set to take place November 2014. In addition to organizing the conference, Brad will present a paper on the English Republic of Indians.
