The volume seeks to engage discussions across disciplines and world regions on the effects and experience of empire and Imperialism, trying to establish a dialogue between metropolitan cultural practices and non-metropolitan locations, and including debates on critical internationalism and the so-called 'new cosmopolitanism' (Appiah 2006; Robbins 2012), that explores the conflict between loyalty to the good of humanity as a whole and loyalty to the interest of individual nations.
