Imperial Infrastructure and Spatial Resistance ...
82,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Between 1880 and 1930, the British Empire's vast infrastructural developments facilitated the incorporation of large parts of the globe into not only its imperial rule, but also the capitalist world-system. Throughout this period, colonial literary fiction, in recording this vast expansion, repeatedly cited these imperial infrastructures to make sense of the various colonial landscapes in which they were set. Physical embodiments of empire proliferate in this writing. Railways and trains, telegraph wires and telegrams, roads and bridges, steamships and shipping lines, canals and other forms of irrigation, cantonments, the colonial bungalow, and other kinds of colonial urban infrastructure - all of these infrastructural lines broke up the landscape and gave shape to the literary depiction and production of colonial space.By developing a methodology called "infrastructural reading", the author shows how a focus on the infrastructural networks that circulate through colonial fiction are almost always related to some form of anti-imperial resistance that manifests spatially within their literary, narrative and formal elements. This subversive reading strategy - which is applied in turn to writers as varied as H. Rider Haggard, Olive Schreiner and John Buchan in South Africa, and Flora Annie Steel, E.M. Forster and Edward Thompson in India - demonstrates that these mostly pro-imperial writings can reveal an array of ideological anxieties, limitations and silences as well as more direct objections to and acts of violent defiance against imperial control and capitalist accumulation.

Edward Hamilton Aitken (1851-1909) was a humourist, naturalist and a writer especially on the wildlife of India. He was well known to Anglo-Indians by the pen-name of Eha. He entered the Customs and Salt Department of the Government of Bombay in 1876, and served in Kharaghoda (referred to as Dustypore in The Tribes on my Frontier, 1883), Uran, North Kanara and Goa Frontier, Ratnagiri, and Bombay itself. He explored the jungles on the hills near Vihar around Bombay and wrote a book called The Naturalist on the Prowl (1894). His writing style was accurate and at the same time amusing to his readers. He studied most of his subjects in life and was very restricted in his collecting. In May, 1903, he was appointed Chief Collector of Customs and Salt Revenue at Karachi, and in November, 1905, was made Superintendent in charge of the District Gazetteer of Sind. He retired from the service in August 1906. His other works include: An Indian Naturalist's Foreign Policy (1883), Behind the Bungalow (1889) and The Common Birds of Bombay (1900).
