"Jeremy Bentham's Re-writings of the World, 1776-1832"

Linda Colley, Princeton University


Linda Colley, the Shelby M.C. Davis 1958 Professor of History, is an expert on Britain since 1700. She favors cross-disciplinary history, and in both her writing and teaching examines Britain’s past in broader European, imperial, and global contexts.

Professor Colley is currently writing a book on war, empire and the spread of constitution making after 1750. She is the Princeton representative of the Wolfson Foundation funded "Global Nodes, Global Orders" project, which links senior scholars at work on global history at the Universities of Oxford, Osaka, Konstanz, Leiden, Kolkata, and Princeton University.


The Eighteenth-Century Seminar, sponsored by the History Department, provides an interdisciplinary forum for scholars interested in all aspects of eighteenth-century history and culture in Europe and across continents. Open to faculty and students from Princeton and nearby institutions, it hosts four invited speakers each semester, and a one-day symposium in April on a particular theme.
