NEW JOURNAL Volume 1 planned for 2017!
The H-Decol network provides a forum in which the end of European, American and Asian empires and the rise of independent nation-states, principally, but not exclusively, in the long twentieth century, can be understood holistically, across the boundaries drawn by particular bilateral metropole-colony relations. H-Decol explores the nexus of power, strategy and identity that carved overseas empires into the nation-states that make up the modern atlas. Above all, H-Decol seeks to encourage scholarly discussion and debate across academic disciplines on the course of imperial retrenchment, and the broader cultural, economic, political and ideological imprint left by decolonization on both the 'colonizer' and the 'colonized'.

CALL FOR PAPERS
In 2015 only seventeen territories remain on the United Nations list of Non-Self Governing Territories (NSGT), which is a significant reduction in numbers compared to the situation after the War in 1946 which was of course representative of the global spread of European colonialism of the time.
