Professor Tony Ballantyne (Department of History and Art History) is Director of the Centre. He has published widely on British colonialism and his work – especially Orientalism and Race (2002) and Between Colonialism and Diaspora  (2006) – has frequently been identified as helping define the ‘new imperial history’. Much of his recent research has focused on the cultural and intellectual history of colonial New Zealand and many of these essays are brought together in Webs of Empire: Locating New Zealand’s Colonial Past (Bridget Williams Books, 2012).
