The Politics of Migration and Subalternity in the Andaman Islands

Philipp Zehmisch

  • First ethnographic literature on the Ranchi Community in the Andaman Islands.
  • Contributes to the academic tradition of subaltern theory from an anthropological perspective
  • Focusses on how marginalised people from criminalised, low-class, low-caste, landless, refugee, repatriated, and Adivasi backgrounds have come to form a cosmopolitan 'Mini-India' in the Andaman Islands.
