This week will bring our study of Empire and its Aftermath to an end. The lecture will look back over some of the key themes of the module, while the seminar class will discuss and debate some of the more challenging and provocative questions raised by this history.
There is no required reading for this week, but do please try and give some thought to the seminar questions below, as the class discussion will be framed around them.
1. How relevant is the study of Empire?
2. Has imperialism ended?
3. Was the British Empire ‘good’ or ‘bad’?
