The University of Southampton
Centre for Imperial and Post Colonial Studies

Aims and objectives

The Centre for Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies was founded in 2006 to stimulate and support the study of empire, decolonization and the post-colonial world across all the disciplines in the Faculty of Humanities.

The mission of the centre is to explore the practices, experiences and legacies of imperial power in local, transnational and global settings from the early-modern period through to the present day.

The centre sustains a multi- and increasingly inter-disciplinary research culture for academics and postgraduates working in the fields of Anglophone and non-Anglophone imperial and post-colonial studies.

It hosts seminars, workshops, conferences and public events as well as providing specialist expertise in postgraduate teaching and supervision.
