Apurbaa Chatterjee, Nature in the Culture of Empire: Showcasing Early British India
23 November, 2017 @ 1:05 pm - 1:50 pm
For this EMF, we welcome History PhD student Apurbaa Chatterjee. She will deal with the visual representations of Indian flora and fauna during early British rule, around 1760 to 1820. In doing so, her talk situates nature within imperial politics and understands its representations as crucial to British control over India. This in turn feeds into the creation of imperial self-image that was vital to the legitimacy of British rule in India.
This session is organised by the EMDG.
