In his research and teaching, Aidan Forth explores European empires as venues of violence and warfare; humanitarian intervention; and the rich cross-fertilization of cultures, identities, and ideas that have shaped the modern world. His prize-winning first book Barbed-Wire Imperialism: Britain’s Empire of Camps, 1876-1903 reveals a global but hitherto unexplored network of refugee and concentration camps established by Britain in the late nineteenth century, while his forthcoming volume Camps: A Global History of Mass Confinement incorporates histories of imperial internment within a wider global history. Aidan is also conducting preliminary research for a new monograph titled The Passage East, which examines the technologies and ideologies of migration and cross-cultural interaction as they developed globally in the long nineteenth century.
