The theme of this year’s conference is Interventions in the Post-Colonial World. Proposals should address one or more of the themes in the following questions:

  • What is the nature of the relationships between local actors, including political and economic elites, international institutions, and imperial powers?
  • What forms of resistance appear in response to intervention? What are the root causes of these interventions and what are their legacies?
