9780820467504: Remembering Empire: Power, Memory, & Place in Postcolonial India (Intersections in Communications and Culture) (v. 9)

Based on an ethnography of Fort St. George Museum in Chennai (formerly Madras), India, Remembering Empire explores the public and private politics of preserving the memory of the British period in the former seat of the British East India Company. K. E. Supriya shows how the preservation of artifacts and paintings from the British period has become a means through which the imperialist politics of empire are reworked in the cultural memory of the South Indian people. Fieldwork in the museum and extensive interviews across three generations show how Indians reconcile with the Britishness of Indian identity. Woven throughout is the author’s probing commentary on the significance of affirmative conversations about racialized pasts in the United States. Remembering Empire is essential reading for anyone interested in postcolonial India and the politics of cultural memory.

About the Author:

The Author: K. E. Supriya is Associate Professor in the Department of Communication, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Dr. Supriya uses qualitative methods to research cultural identity, specializing in Indian identity. She is the author of Shame and Recovery: Mapping Identity in an Asian Women’s Shelter (Peter Lang, 2002).

Review:

«This stimulating study usefully confronts post-colonial theory with the voices of post-colonial subjects... K. E. Supriya’s sophisticated deployment of theories of communication, memory, and race, as well as the impressive empirical material she has gathered, together offer a new perspective on problems of identity formation, nationality, and globalization.» (Daniel J. Sherman, Professor of History and Director for the Center for 21st Century Studies, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, author of ‘The Construction of Memory in Interwar France’)
