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.

Cross-post from H-Environment

I am looking for additional papers/I hope to join a panel (ASEH 2016) focusing on national parks/wilderness/imperialism within a global sense. My own work is tied to Africa. Please email me directly at Martin.Kalb[at]nau.edu for questions/suggestions.

Thank you.
