Director: Dr John Slight
The Centre's main aim is to promote interdisciplinary research into empire and postcolonial conditions, with a particular focus on the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Oceania - their nations, peoples, societies, cultures and global diasporas. We organise and host seminars, workshops and conferences, encourage postgraduate research and publications, and run individual and collaborative research projects and exchanges with colleagues in the UK, Europe, Africa and Asia. The Centre was established in 2002. Members have contributed to the writing of a range of current Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences modules including: A328 Empires: power, resistance, legacies, F88 MA English Literature (with a strand in English Literature as an international literary form), A215 Creative writing and previous modules including A326 Empire 1492-1975, A815 MA English, A230 Reading and studying literature, as well as contributions to previous modules in Heritage studies.
