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.

ANN: Introduction

Hi all. Thank you for including me in the conversation. My name is Nick Waddy, and I teach European and African history at SUNY Alfred. My bread and butter course is Western Civ Since 1648, of which I teach multiple sections every semester. I also teach upper-level classes in African history and 20th century military history.

Thanks again for including me in your discussions, and I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible.
