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: Public Health in the Caribbean and Latin America: A Historical Perspective (York, July 2014)

Diffusionist models of understanding the histories of medicine and health practices in non-European countries have increasingly been discredited. Instead, scholars now highlight the multi-directional movement of ideas and practices between Europe and other parts of the world, as well as the mutually-constitutive character of imperialism, post-colonial ideologies and development projects.

PUB: A Problem of Great Importance: Race, Population and Power in the British Empire, 1918-1973

I want to announce the publication of my book ‘A Problem of Great Importance’:  Population, Race and Power in the British Empire, 1918-1973 by the University of California Press.  A Problem of Great Importance explores the growing importance of demographic issues in the 20th century empire. It traces how the imperial state turned to metropolitan activists to improve its knowledge of colonial demography and design programs to influence colonial population trends.
