Picture of Reviewing Imperial Conflicts

Reviewing Imperial Conflicts

Editor(s): Ana Cristina Mendes, Cristina Baptista

Book Description

This volume of essays investigates, across a wide range of texts and with an emphasis on the notion of conflict, the various forms, objects and modes of circulation that sustained the “European civilizing mission.” At the heart of this volume are two controversial and conflicting papers, authored by Robert JC Young and Bernard Porter, around which other researchers come together to complement the debate and address some of the thorny issues that arise from reviewing colonial and postcolonial conflicts. Under the aegis of history and cultural studies, as well as film studies, the contributors in this collection share the common purpose of reviewing imperial conflicts while arguing for their own research agendas. From opposition and conflict, new perspectives on those cultural processes, within the particular context of the British Empire, are gained.
