Nation Empire Globe
The Nation-Empire-Globe (NEG) Research Cluster is an inter-disciplinary group, based in the Department of History, which engages in and promotes research in the humanities and social sciences on nationalism and internationalism, imperialism and colonialism, and globalisation.
Established in 2005, it has hosted international conferences and roundtable discussions, visits to the University of Sydney by distinguished academics from overseas, international postgraduate video seminars and a set of annual residential master classes for students from Sydney, other Australian universities and overseas institutions. Postgraduate students linked to the cluster, in cooperation with colleagues at the University of Leeds and the University of Bristol, have recently set up an on-line journal, Ex Plus Ultra. NEG works in close collaboration with other universities of the World Universities Network.
Among other activities scheduled for 2012, NEG will hold a two-day conference on Human Rights and Imperialism in Historical Perspective.
