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: AHA panel on "Migration and Movement in Asia" (Atlanta, January 2016)

My fellow PhD student Jon Chappell and I are putting together a panel proposal for the 2016 American Historical Association meeting in Atlanta (7-10 January). The conference theme is ‘Global Migrations: Empire, Nations and Neighbours.’ We are planning to do something — very broadly conceived — on Migration and Movement in Asia. 

CFP: Panel on philanthropic responsibility for Birmingham Modern Studies Conference (July 2-3, 2015)

We are in search of a third panelist and commentator for the Birmingham British Studies Workshop (July 2-3, 2015).  The panel will center on contests over responsibility in crisis. Caroline's work deals with British involvement with foreign refugees, while Christienna’s work examines local, regional, and imperial assistance to Jamaicans in crisis in the 19th and 20th centuries. There are any number of directions the panel can take depending on the interests of the third participant.
