Over the course of the last few years, the transnational and global turn in the social sciences has inspired a profound renewal of colonial and imperial history (Kreienbaum, Kamissek, 2016).
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.
