Part of the Empire and the Making of the Modern World, 1650-2000 series
Archiving Settler Colonialism: Culture, Race, and Space brings together 15 essays from across the globe, to capture a moment in settler colonial studies that turns increasingly towards new cultural archives for settler colonial research.
Essays on hitherto under-examined materials-including postage stamps, musical scores, urban parks, and psychiatric records-reflect on how cultural texts archive moments of settler self-fashioning.
Archiving Settler Colonialism also expands settler colonial studies' reach as an international academic discipline, bringing together scholarly research about the British breakaway settler colonies with underanalyzed non-white, non-Anglophone settler societies.
The essays together illustrate settler colonial cultures as-for all their similarities-ultimately divergent constructions, locally situated and produced of specific power relations within the messy operations of imperial domination.
