Legacies of empire in the Middle East, India, and China
Sunday 26 September 2021, 4.00pm to 4.50pm BST
The Ottoman Empire dissolved in the aftermath of the First World War, the British Empire in India came to an end in 1947, and the Manchu Qing Dynasty made way for the Republic of China in 1912. What legacies did the Ottomans, the British, and the Manchus leave behind in the Middle East, India, and China? How are these legacies debated today in these three countries? Can people pick and chose as they fashion new historical identities? What can we learn from these controversies about our own struggles to come to terms with colonial legacies and rethink globalization?
