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: 'The Global Irish Revolution, 1916-1923' Workshop (Belfast, 25 June 2018)

Call for Papers

Queen’s University Belfast, together with the University of Edinburgh, invites papers from early career scholars for a one day workshop on the theme of ‘The global Irish Revolution’. The Irish Revolution 1916-23 is the subject of extensive historical investigation but most of this research has focused on local, regional or national contexts and has yet to be the subject of sustained global historical enquiry.

CFC: People-Works: The Labor of Transport (2018 Online Exhibit)

The Mobility in History Blog invites researchers and advanced graduate students to submit proposals for contributions to an online exhibit on the theme of “People-Works: The Labor of Transport.” The online exhibit explores the role of human labor in the powering of transport throughout history and across area contexts.
