Philip Stern

Sally Dalton Robinson Associate Professor of History (2015 - 2020)

Professor Stern has contributed greatly to the history of colonialism. Breaking from more traditional narratives, he has asked a series of fundamentally new questions about the intellectual and institutional construction of sovereignty of the British Empire in Asia. He is also known for involving and engaging others in original research. This year he led a group of undergraduate students in the creation of a Nasher exhibit of early colonial maps.
