Abstract This discussion investigates processes of framing knowledge in globalised knowledge economies though tracing historical and present processes of empire. Seeking to understand the present and future conditions of knowledge-empires, it aims to shed light on the relations of power and knowledge in terms of the nation state, which is already framed by the empire of globalisation. It considers the imperatives to drive efficiencies of knowledge transfer in education and the shaping of the human subject within global constructions of knowledge. When one traces the idea of empire alongside that of globalisation then it could be said that we are situated between an empire past and an empire yet to come; and in both the technologies of knowledge are aligned with the technologies of power.
