Brown bag seminar on post-imperial successor states
Discussion to be led by Joshua Walker of the Crown Center
"Shadows of Empire: How Post-Imperial Successor States Shape Memories" is the title of a Brown Bag Seminar to take place Wednesday Oct. 6 from 12:30 until 2:00 p.m. in the Heller Building, Room G53. The event is sponsored by the Crown Center for Middle East Studies.
The discussion will be lead by Joshua W. Walker, Junior Scholar Fellow at the Crown Center and a fellow at the German Marshall Fund based in Washington, D.C.
Walker will lay out an argument and framework for understanding the evolution of successor states like Japan and Turkey. His observations are based on his recently defended dissertation and current book project in which he highlights the interaction between international structural constraints in the aftermath of empire, and the resulting domestic political landscape in metropolis successor states.
Guests are invited to bring a brown bag lunch. Refreshments will be provided.
