Essays in this collection assess "the nation" as a subject of disciplinary inquiry, considering both its enduring relevance and its inadequacy as an analytical category for studying history, literature, and culture.


Antoinette Burton is Catherine C. and Bruce A. Bastian Professor of Global and Transnational Studies, Department of History, University of Illinois. Among her books are "Dwelling in the Archive: Women Writing House, Home, and History in Late Colonial India" and "At the Heart of the Empire: Indians and the Colonial Encounter in Late-Victorian Britain."


"This is timely intervention in the conversation on the nation sparked by critiques of the imperial foundations of modern nations and disciplines. It both assesses the fruits of the 'imperial turn" in scholarship and charts new directions on how to think and teach in the aftermath of the critiques of the nation. Incorporating perspectives from a range of disciplines and locations, the essays offer challenging reflections on the historicity of the present."-Gyan Prakash, editor of After Colonialism: Imperial Histories and Postcolonial Displacements "After the Imperial Turn is an important collection of essays marking the 'coming of age' of 'new imperial history'. One of its great strengths is its range-from the big picture to the local study, from the pedagogic to the institutional, from the British exemplar to a number of comparative perspectives, from the U.S. to the Caribbean and Hong Kong. This is an essential read for aspiring young historians." Catherine Hall, author of Civilising Subjects: Metropole and Colony in the English Imagination 1830-1867
