Empire Online is a powerful and interactive digital resource, enabling undergraduates, postgraduates, academics and researchers to explore colonial history, politics, culture and society.
Driven by a panel of 19 Consultant Editors from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the USA it has been designed specifically to encourage the use of primary sources in teaching. It features:
- A thematic layout with sections covering Cultural Contacts, Literature of Empire, the Visible Empire, Religion, Race, Class and Imperialism.
- Essays by all of our Consultant Editors introducing the material and suggesting possible pathways for research and teaching.
- Thousands of images of unique source material including maps, manuscripts, pamphlets, paintings, drawings and rare books. All items are included in their entirety and the sources encourage multiple viewpoints.
- Detailed indexing that enables the sources to be explored in a variety of ways (by period, by date, by person and subject).
- Sources spanning five centuries from 1492 to 2007.
