              During the interwar period Osa and Martin Johnson became famous for their films that brought exotic and far-off locations to the American cinema. Before the advent of mass tourism and television, their films played a major part in providing the means by which large audiences in t...he US and beyond became familiar with distant and 'wild' places across the world. Taking the celebrity of the Johnsons as its case study, this book investigates the influence of these new forms of visual culture, showing how they created their own version of America's imperial drama. By representing themselves as benevolent figures engaged in preserving on film the world's last wild places and peoples, the Johnsons' films educated US audiences about their apparent destiny to rule, contributing significantly to the popularity of empire. Bringing together research in the fields of film and politics - including gender and empire, historical anthropology, photography and visual studies - this book provides a comprehensive evaluation of the Johnsons, their work and its impact. It considers the Johnsons as a celebrity duo, their status as national icons, how they promoted themselves and their expeditions, and how their careers informed American expansionism, thus providing the first scholarly investigation of this remarkable couple and their extensive output over nearly three decades and across several continents.

              Writing Transnational History

              Over the past two decades, transnational history has become an established term describing approaches to the writing of world or global history that emphasise movement, dynamism and diversity. This book investigates the emergence of the 'transnational' as an approach, its limits,... and parameters. It focuses particular attention on the contributions of postcolonial and feminist studies in reformulating transnational historiography as a move beyond the national to one focusing on oceans, the movement of people, and the contributions of the margins. It ends with a consideration of developing approaches such as translocalism. The book considers the new kinds of history that need to be written now that the transnational perspective has become widespread. Providing an accessible and engaging chronology of the field, it will be key reading for students of historiography and world history.

              Sources and Methods in Histories of Colonialism: Approaching the Imperial Archive (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Sources and Methods in Histories of Colonialism encourages readers to think more critically and analytically about the archives in which they work as well as about their research methods, their sources and their conceptual approaches. This volume provides an in-depth and critical... survey of the now substantial and influential scholarly literatures on the functions and scope of the imperial archive and in particular on the relationship between the archive, knowledge and power. It allows readers to develop a deeper understanding of the challenges of working with a range of specific source genres within imperial & colonial archives. And it explores the ways in which newer approaches to, and ways of thinking about, the past, such as transnationalism or gender, have challenged more traditional views of the archive, provoking new questions about what archives are and where their conceptual, geographical and chronological boundaries might lie and it assesses the implications of these shifts for those interested in researching colonial and postcolonial societies. Looking at the period from the eighteenth century to the present, Kirsty Reid and Fiona Paisley examine issues, themes and case studies pertaining to a broad range of modern European empires including those established by Britain, France, the Netherlands, Spain and the United States. The source genres discussed illustrate and exemplify the core themes and debates regarding the writing of colonial and postcolonial histories, covering subjects such as government papers, censuses, tattoos and talk. Each of the chapters are organised into two parts. The first part provides an overview of the current state of research and writing about that particular source genre or conceptual theme. Part two of each chapter is structured around a case study which enables readers to explore and examine the issues in a grounded, hands-on and applied fashion.

              Critical Perspectives on Colonialism: Writing the Empire from Below
               

              Critical Perspectives on Colonialism: Writing the Empire from Below (Hardback)

              Over the last few decades, the study of texts has increasingly occupied centre-stage within the study of empire. A now voluminous literature emphasizes the ways in which such texts represented and objectified colonial others, thus serving as key mechanisms for the production of d...ifference and, in turn, for the establishment and maintenance of empires. Given the intensely textual character of colonialism, the written word has been acknowledged as a key technology of imperial power. This collection extends this field of study by bringing much needed focus to the vibrancy and vitality of minority and marginal writing about empire, and to their implications as expressions of embodied contact between imperial power and those negotiating its consequences from below . While considerable attention has been paid to the ways in which hierarchies of gender have shaped such texts, the existing scholarship tends to privilege published texts and also the writing of colonizers. Hence vernacular and performative forms of writing the empire have been largely overlooked, leaving an important history of the highly contested history of empire mostly untapped. In addressing this gap, the essays in this collection explore how less powerful and less privileged actors in metropolitan and colonial societies within the British Empire have made use of the written word and of the power of speech, public performance, and street politics. This book breaks new ground by combining work about marginalized figures from within Britain as well as counterparts in the colonies, ranging from published sources such as indigenous newspapers to ordinary and everyday writings including diaries, letters, petitions, ballads, suicide notes, and more. Showcasing remarkable historical research by leading historians working with an impressive array of original material from around the globe, the chapters in this collection bring to light largely hitherto unknown histories of subalternity.
