Looking For Traces of Empire, from Kazakhstan to Algeria: Military Architecture in Russian and French Colonies
Join Dr Berny Sebe (University of Birmingham) and Dr Alexander Morrison (University of Liverpool) for this illustrated lecture charting their research in search of the remains and contemporary influence of colonial fortresses on post-colonial urban landscapes.
This lecture interrogates the nature and operational capacity of two major European and Christian empires trying to assert their control in predominantly Muslim territories, and offers a unique visual and historical foray into new, previously unchartered, research territories.
