School of History, Classics and Archaeology

Empires and After

About

We have a global perspective. We research the British Empire and 20th century post-colonialism, and also earlier empires (not least the Roman Empire).

Global and transnational approaches have been distinctive strengths at Newcastle for more than 15 years. Researchers work in Europe, the Middle East, India, East Asia and the Americas.

The University Research Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) is a key initiative. It's been led from the School since January 2015.
