Moving Subjects: Gender, Mobility, and Intimacy in an Age of Global Empire

Tony Ballantyne (Editor), Antoinette M. Burton (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Moving Subjects is the first of its kind to make a case not simply for the necessity of a spatial analysis of imperial formations, but for the indispensability of an investigative approach that links space and movement with the domain of the intimate. Through a combination of careful archival research and a commitment to excavating the variety of "mobile intimacies" at the heart of imperial power, its agents, and its interlocutors, this volume offers new evidence and approaches for scholars engaged in capturing the historical nuances of imperial domination. The book’s contributors investigate how intimacy was constructed across the restless world of empire, a world that depended on the circulation of capital and commodities; the exchange of systems of governance and surveillance; and the movement of laborers, slaves, soldiers, and settlers.
