SOC 5400 - Empires

This course will look at empires in the broadest possible context, historically and geographically. Its main focus will be the modern European empires: Spanish, British, French, Austrian, Russian, and Ottoman. Their form of rule, treatment of subject peoples, self-conceptions of the ruling peoples and their sense of the ‘mission’ of empire will be emphasized. There will be comparisons between empires - past, contemporaneous, and future.
