Places will be offered to 20 graduate research students who will be invited to reflect on the significance of empire in modern history, in international and transnational contexts. Participants will be drawn from those working in cultural, social, political, economic, and intellectual history, and in any of the many international contexts in which questions of empire have been of importance, whether the history of internationalism, or development, nationalism or trade, slavery, or anti-slavery, or indeed the history of ideas of liberalism, or colonialism, or decolonization, human rights, or women’s rights, race, class or gender. Students will be encouraged to consider the broad historiographical implications of their work, and in some way engage with the literature on international historiography.
Students accepted into the intensive will be required to contribute a written paper for pre-circulation, and presentation at the meeting to take place over two days, from Thursday 26 - Friday 27, 2012. Each paper will receive a commentary from an allocated Faculty respondent.
