The Tanner Humanities Center is pleased to sponsor a two-day interdisciplinary conference addressing the entangled relationship between peace and violence in the colonial Americas. The conference will define “peace” broadly, framing it as a discourse on governance and as a set of disciplinary practices aimed at shaping, regulating, or limiting violence. Our contention is that scholars underappreciate the importance of peace – both historically and as a category of analysis – to understanding how colonial Americans grappled with the problem of violence and warfare.
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.
