The Empire and Postcolonial Research Group within the Department of History links to the cross-faculty Ferguson Centre for African and Asian Studies. Areas of particular interest include the British Empire, colonial India, relationships between the West and the postcolonial world, empire in Asian port cities, and heritage. Research into imperial conflicts, including policing and counterinsurgency, is a particular strength, and overlaps with the department’s Crime and Policing Research Group. We have particular regional expertise covering Asia (India, SE Asia, the coast of China) and Africa (Kenya).
We welcome applications in areas that correspond with current staff research interests. We look for detailed and well thought-out proposals, which set out specific research questions and outline the originality of your topic or approach.
