    Travelling Passports: The Imperial and National in objects between England and Jamaica, 1958-1975

    The following PhD project will examine the British passport in travel during a period of global decolonization, 1958-1975. In placing the passport in the center of it, the project will examine both the material as well as the cultural, social and political experience of the passport during the end of the British Empire. To do this, the experience and practice of travel between England and Jamaica will be introduced as a space in which the passport was altered materially – in production, appearance and content; legalistically – in use and attainability; while being associated with changing notions of imperial imagination and the English nation. First, the project will explore the passport for the imperial elements that were rooted in its structures, production, uses, attainability and external recognition. Second, it will examine the alterations and tensions between imperial imagination and the nation during the end of empire.  To both of these ends, the case of Jamaica has been included to expand the historical perspectives made possible through an object-centered examination, given the patterns of migration to England in the post-45 era, the importance of Jamaica for the British Empire and that it was not only those born within the United Kingdom who were eligible for a British passport.
