Echoes of Empire: The Present of Europe’s Colonial Pasts, edited with Berny Sebe, I.B. Taurus, 2015
How does our colonial past echo through today’s global politics? How have former empire-builders sought vindication or atonement, and formerly colonized states reversal or retribution? This groundbreaking book presents a panoramic view of attitudes to empires past and present, seen not only through the hard politics of international power structures but also through the nuances of memory, historiography and national and minority cultural identities.
Oxford and Colonialism
December 2021 The Oxford working group on Oxford of Colonialism which I created in 2016 and co-chaired with Laura van Broekhoven and coordinated by Dorian Singh finally completed its stage 1 goal to spearhead the new website gathering a wealth of material on Oxford and Colonialism produced by departments, colleges and other actors in and around the University: https://oxfordandcolonialism.web.ox.ac.uk/
This all makes for fascinating read and we are all hoping that it will be beginning of a process.
Oxford created the Working Group on Oxford University and Colonialism in the Spring of 2016 to help mediate a conversation between all constituencies of the University on issues related to Oxford’s colonial legacies.
