Perspectives on Empire




About the Course

How have empires been defended or challenged? How have motivations for imperial rule been differently understood? Is the age of Empire over – or are we witnessing its rebirth through the political transformations of globalization? Reading historical writings on colonialism together with current debates about ‘Western imperialism’ or ‘American imperialism’, this seminar traces the political questions and challenges raised by different perspectives on empire.
