Propagating Power: Gender, Language, and Empire in the English Baroque Revival (1885-1920)

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract / Description of output

This paper concerns the important if obscure phase in the history of British architecture known as the English Baroque Revival, otherwise referred to as ‘Edwardian Baroque’. This phase was part of the wider neo-classical resurgence in public architecture that occurred in Britain and its empire during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (c.1885-1920). It grew out of and thus came to symbolise Britain’s renewed engagement with empire following Benjamin Disraeli’s ‘new imperial’ politics of the 1870s, and can be understood as a prominent material culture expression of this particular episode in the political and cultural history of Britain.
