Can a long-term and comparative understanding of the nature of imperial identities shed light on some of the dynamics behind Brexit? The ways in which empires – and their collapse – transform their central regions as much as the colonies constitute a significant part of the story, argues Andrew Gardner, summarising an article recently published in the Journal of Social Archaeology.

CREDOC Call for Proposals
28 April 2014
The Centre for Research on the Dynamics of Civilisation (CREDOC) invites applications under its first Small Grants Scheme for UCL staff and junior researchers. Deadline: 30 May 2014.
The Centre for Research on the Dynamics of Civilisation (CREDOC) seeks to understand the social phenomenon of 'civilisation' and to challenge the role it is being made to play in the modern world. ‘Civilisation’ describes a social phenomenon greater than the nation. It has been identified by materials, languages, institutions and habits that are spread over time yet remain linked to one another as an integrated system. Civilisation appears on the map of modern political debate, whether in international policy (where it is used to build transnational political structures) or in the popular idea of a 'clash of civilisations'. Yet what is a civilisation? How do civilisations form, develop, endure and decay? And why does civilisation matter so much to us now?
- up to £3,000 available for research projects led by UCL staff
- up to £1,000 available for research activity led by UCL junior researchers
- support for projects that address the dynamics of civilisation
- funding for activities undertaken within a year of the award and/or before end of tenure as student or staff at UCL
The application deadline is 30 May 2014.
