The 2012 Jean Monnet Symposium hosted by the European Union Center of Excellence and European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh will bring together historians and political scientists to discuss empires old and new. Its goal is to advance the current discussion of how to define empire, look at how empires have defined themselves in the past, and build upon our understanding of historical empires to refine new categories of analysis applicable to the European Union of the present.
