Welcome to H-Empire, H-Net's network on colonial and imperial studies!

H-Empire seeks to bring together scholars and others interested in sharing resources, research and questions concerning the origin, development, working and decline of empires, rather broadly defined across academic disciplines and professional interests, chronological time periods, and geographical regions.

CFP: Empire and Southeast Asia, Asian Studies Association (Denver, March 2019)

Hi, I am looking for a panelist to add to a proposed panel dealing broadly with Modern Imperialism in Southeast Asia for the AAS  (Asian Studies Association) Conference which will be held in Denver on March 21-24, 2019. This is a bit last minute as the final proposals are due the afternoon of August 1st. The other panelists are doing topics dealing with knowledge production, national identity, material culture, and health. If you think your paper would fit, please email me.
