Empire Histories and Legacies

Empire: Histories and Legacies – a free talk by Professor Gurminder K Bhambra

To accompany the exhibition of EMPIRE by artist Elisabetta Benassi, currently showing at MOSTYN, Professor Gurminder K Bhambra of the University of Sussex will be speaking about the histories and legacies of empire.

Britain – and Europe more generally – is in denial of its colonial and imperial past. There is little recognition of that past, for example, in public debates on contemporary global social, economic, and political issues. Some argue that, in any case, domination of others through empire is by no means exclusive to Europe: should we not also talk about the Romans or the Ottomans?

Join us at 2pm on Saturday 14 September. The talk is free but booking is advised. Telephone 01492 868191 during MOSTYN opening hours.
