Dom Alessio, Professor of History and Dean of International Programmes, recently presented a paper on his new research examining the role of filibusters in empire formation and the origins of fascism by way of Jules Verne’s last published book The Barsac Mission (1914). The international conference, entitled “Utopias”, was held at the University of Brighton. The work is part of an on-going re-examination of the theories surrounding empire-state formation and argues that states are not the only empire-makers. An extended and updated version of the piece is to be presented at the institute of Historical Research in October.
