Queen Victoria in Indigenous Worlds

First Edition

edited by Sarah Carter and Maria Nugent

Published by Manchester University Press

Studies in Imperialism MUP

  • The first volume to draw together studies of indigenous people's representations of and to Queen Victoria as part of broader political responses to British imperial incursion and settler colonialism
  • Offers transnational and cross-cultural insights into how indigenous people across Britain's settler colonies engaged with imperial discourses of loyalty, subjecthood, monarchy, citizenship, rights, and sovereignty, and challenged 'fantasies of empire'
  • Includes indigenous perspectives on imperial and colonial history by using tools of cultural and ethnographic history, including analysis of material culture, visual sources, oral histories and oratory, performances and diplomacy, commemoration, and indigenous-language texts
  • Recovers histories of indigenous people's agency in contributing to cultures of monarchy, as well as raises questions concerning Queen Victoria's own ideas about the settler colonies and the dispossession of indigenous people
