Modern global culture has been irrevocably transformed by the empires that have risen and fallen over millennia, whose legacies endure in our politics, socio-economics, landscapes, environments and ideologies.
Different empires are frequently considered in isolation, but our department brings together expertise ranging from Hellenistic Greece and Rome to the British trading ports in China.
Our examination of empires and their effect on identity extends beyond issues of power and politics to also explore regional identities and the relationship of major cities to their surrounding landscapes.
