Empire and Ethnicity in the Modern World

ASEN/ Nations and Nationalism Ernest Gellner Nationalism Lecture

This lecture will examine the ways in which colonial empires promoted, exploited or repressed ethnicity; the extent to which emergent ethnicities looked to their colonial masters for protection and guidance; and some of the post-colonial consequences of this.

ASEN and Nations and Nationalism sponsor and publish this annual lecture in memory of Professor Ernest Gellner.

John Darwin is a fellow of Nuffield College, Oxford.
