Empire Studies at the University of Houston

Empire Studies at the University of Houston was founded by a faculty collective in the Department of English.  Our mission involves several frameworks and practices:

  • To bring the practices and perspectives of empire in its many forms to bear upon the study of literature and culture
  • To theorize new models for the awareness and critique of empire
  • To use these models for teaching and classroom practice
  • To promote the interdisciplinary exchange of research and writing in Empire Studies, at the University of Houston and beyond

Courses, research projects, and information about the Graduate Certificate in Empire Studies may be found by clicking on tabs in the sidebar or at the top of this home page.  We welcome inquiries and exchange.
