The British Empire and Global Integration, 1815-1960

This course considers how assorted types of colonizers working within a loosely-managed empire cooped, dispersed, and displaced subject populations and cultures, attempted to restructure established civilizations, pursued economic and strategic opportunities, moved and managed people in conjunction with plans for “improvement”, diffused a language and array of ideas about law, justice and government, and distributed flora and fauna around the world.
