Imperialism as Diaspora

Race, Sexuality, and History in Anglo-India

Ralph Crane and Radhika Mohanram

Liverpool University Press

  • Truly multidisciplinary in its emphasis on reading the cultural history visual representations alongside the fiction of Anglo-India
  • Resurrects and reconsiders an almost forgotten body of literature that is neither read as English literature nor Indian literature
  • Reconsiders the lives of Anglo-Indians which are generally only read within the framework of imperialism
  • Intersects diaspora with imperialism to show the ambivalences, fissures, and cracks in representations of imperial identities and the development of colonial history
  • Explores the reconstruction of gender and sexuality under Anglo-Indian imperial rule in India
