Jeppe Mulich is a global historian of empire and colonialism, especially in the Caribbean and in the Asia-Pacific. Most of his work deals with legal and political aspects of this history, including trans-imperial networks, sovereignty and jurisdictional contestations, resistance and revolution, and the lasting legacies of colonization. He completed his doctoral training at New York University and has broad interests in global history, historical sociology, and international political theory.
