Professor Stephen Constantine

Emeritus Professor

Research Overview

Current research is specifically concerned with the history of St Helena, a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic. I also retain an on-going interest in the history of Gibraltar, the publicity campaigns of the Empire Marketing Board, and migration and settlement into and around the British Empire and Commonwealth, including the dispatch overseas as child migrants of children in care in the UK.
