British Colonial Realism in Africa : Inalienable Objects, Contested Domains, Hardback Book

British Colonial Realism in Africa : Inalienable Objects, Contested Domains Hardback

Part of the Palgrave Studies in Nineteenth-Century Writing and Culture series

Description

What role do objects play in realist narratives as they move between societies and their different systems of value as commodities, as charms, as gifts, as trophies, or as curses?

This book explores how the struggle to represent objects in British colonial realism corresponded with historical struggles over the material world and its significance.
