Vocal Articulations of Parliamentary Identity and Empire (CALLIOPE) is a research project based at Helsinki University's Department of Cultures and funded by European Research Council. Focusing on the role of human voices in practices of political transfer, it looks 'beyond' Europe to understand how representation and citizenship were articulated in the British and French empires of the nineteenth century.
