42nd Annual Stanford-Berkeley Conference - Empires: Past and Present

Please join us on March 9th at 10:00 AM for the 42nd annual Stanford-Berkeley Conference. A century after the collapse of Europe’s continental empires, we are living in an age that many contemporary scholars have characterized as still dominated by these imperial legacies as well as new forms of imperial rule. This conference will explore both the historical and contemporary, political, socio-economic, and cultural manifestations of empire and its alternatives.
