The Weatherhead East Asian Institute (WEAI) presents "Empire in East Asia II" with Mark Driscoll, University of North Carolina, Cultural Studies and discussant Anupama Rao, Barnard, History from the series "After the Postcolonial Turn: Global Perspectives."

On the premise that post-colonialism (the theory and scholarly practice) and post-coloniality (the historical condition) have both reached a new stage, this series of informal workshop-discussions will compare the specificities of colonial histories across the globe in order to identify commonalities and differences toward the goal of a new conceptualization of those all-too-well-worn words: colonialism and empire.
