Reply to Kristina:
So you and I have actually discussed all this material quite a bit already in preparation for the seminar, and now I feel like we are doing a very thorough job of this indeed.
I drew connections between Gunnel Cederlöf and Libby Robin as well. I struggle a bit with how I will deal with the multiple scales in my own research. I hope reading and writing will help clarify how the scales interact with one another in a way that will make sense in a thesis. I anticipate getting bogged down with the regional detail and trying to latch on to a more global scope later on in the research, but we will see!
I actually usually envision the British Empire when I initially think of ’empire’. In any event, Robin’s comments on reimaging empire and other key concepts still rang true. I think it is pretty exciting to examine concepts from different perspectives and widen my general critical thinking ability, hopefully we will only get more of this in later seminars.
