Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Essays on the role of empire continent and transnationalism in Canadian history are written and published to honor John Herd Thompson. Herd Thompson has made significant contributions in examining the role of empire continent and transnationalism in Canadian history. Transnational approach is concerned with movements, flows, and circulation, not simply as a theme or motif but as an analytic set of methods which defines the endeavor itself. In the fields of empire and imperial relations, this conceptual reorientation developed alongside calls in the late 1990s and early 2000s to integrate national postcolonial histories into the larger framework of imperial history and to bring metropole and colony into one analytic field.
