'Comic Empires: The Imperialism of Cartoons, Caricature and Satirical Art'
Editors: Richard Scully, University of New England in Armidale (New South Wales, Australia), and Andrekos Varnava, Flinders University (Adelaide, South Australia)
In around 15-or-so chapter-length case-studies, we hope to explore the importance of cartoons, caricatures and satirical art in the imperial context (c.1815-1945), from European and non-European imperial actors. The collection will cover important threads of support, resistance, and criticism, of imperialism in both metropole and periphery, explore the question of orientalism, and look at colonial development, as well as any other theme relating to empire.
Abstracts due June 28, 2013.
