Moving Subjects: Gender, Mobility, and Intimacy in an Age of Global Empire
Tony Ballantyne, Antoinette M. Burton
University of Illinois Press, 2009 - History - 353 pages
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 careful archival research and a commitment to excavating the variety of "mobile intimacies" at the heart of imperial power, its agents, and its interlocutors, contributors offer new evidence and approaches for scholars engaged in capturing the historical nuances of imperial domination.
