The arrangements for the 2024 Conference are well under way and if you subscribe to FIBIS you will have received more information and a booking form with the Autumn Journal.  In the meantime, if you are anxious to reserve your place, you can book online with a deposit here.

As you probably already know, FIBIS’s main focus is research into the lives of ancestors who lived and worked in the Indian sub-continent from roughly 1600 to 1947 and the following speakers have accepted our invitation to give a presentation at the Conference and whose expertise sheds light on different parts of that episode in British history which we are sure will attract many delegates to the Conference.
