Rationalities, Technics and Subjects
Conference: 28-30 January 2015
Practices of Order: Colonial and Imperial Projects
University of Copenhagen, Denmark
With this conference we wish to explore practices developed by colonial states and empires in order to govern the behavior of their subject populations. More information will be available on the conference website.
The purpose of this research project is to produce new knowledge on the way policing, law and penal practices functioned as important aspects of colonial governance.
