Comparing European and Indian Empires in Antiquity: How, What and Why

Speaker: Prof. Sitta von Reden

Chairperson: Prof. Anil Bhatti


The Roman Empire stands out as the archetypal great empire. Not only has it been most influential in the formation and ideology of European and Western world empires, but it has also profoundly shaped academic and public debates on the nature of empires, and how and why they developed. This lecture aims to broaden the perspective by discussing patterns of Mediterranean empire formation in the local context of academic research
