About Imperial Aftermaths
This symposium will explore the question of ‘imperial aftermaths’—the continuities and contestations of imperial pasts in the present. How is imperialism remembered in post-¬]colonial nations and former imperial metropoles? In what circumstances have imperial histories been forgotten or erased? Why are imperial pasts a matter of controversy in the present? And how does imperialism continue to shape the world we live in? This symposium will bring together scholars from multiple disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, working on colonisation and decolonisation in various geographical and temporal settings. By engaging diverse perspectives, we hope to foster debate and discover new connections between historical contexts of imperialism and imperialism’s many aftermaths.
