Product description

Review

"An ambitious and theoretically challenging study of how photography shapes a new sensory and governmental apparatus of modernity in the colonial context, "Afterimage of Empire" succeeds in transforming the ways we think about the histories of photography and of colonialism." David Lloyd, University of Southern California"

""Afterimage of Empire "is a significant and original work of cultural analysis, and an important intervention in our understanding of the sensory and rhetorical dimensions of nineteenth century colonialism." Iftikhar Dadi, Cornell University"

""Afterimage of Empire "is an astute analysis of photographic material, from the early days of the medium. It is impressive in its ability to move with care through the different scales of analysis from the minutiae of scattered skulls in the foreground of one photograph to the question of whether a technology transforms both aesthetic form and the viewing subject." Ranjana Khanna, Duke University"
