The Transimperial History Blog features contributions that explore the history of interactions across empires. Transimperial history is an approach that begins from the assumption that empires both dominated world history until the 1960s and engendered postcolonial afterlives that continue to shape societies around the globe until the present, thus enabling us to reveal connections between and across empires. The Transimperial History Blog gives researchers the opportunity to engage in scholarly exchange, publish their research, report from archives that hold relevant collections for transimperial history, and introduce their books.
