‘Singing the Lord’s song in a strange land’: nineteenth-century debates over British rule in India
From Hayley Cotterill on August 30th, 2017
British imperialism in India was a contentious subject, especially amongst those who actively participated in the imperial project. Drawing on the correspondence of British imperial elites and Indian rulers, Dr Onni Gust examines early nineteenth-century debates about the rights and wrongs of British conquest and rule in India.
Audio recorded 19 July 2017 as part of a series of talks accompanying the exhibition 'Threads of Empire: Rule and resistance in colonial India', jointly curated by Manuscripts & Special Collections, Dr Onni Gust, and Ibtisam Ahmed.
