Empires and their Ruins

Where do I start reading?

Or is this actually a Humanities Blog?

I’m sorry I lied, but this might actually be a humanities blog after all. Not much of a surprise is it? Is it a little disappointing? Wait, you don’t have to answer that, I already know what you’re thinking. Remember when your parents told you that if you don’t have anything nice to say, not to say it? Let’s practice that a little (but only for this little introduction).

Corny, clever, or whatever your opinion is of this introduction aside, let’s get to some more serious business. Here on this blog we will be connecting various course topics from this year’s Humanities Core themes to current events. For example we will be taking a look at the concept of empires and how we can apply that to the world today.
