Get Africa in the Indian Imagination: Race and the Politics of PDF

By Antoinette Burton

In Africa within the Indian Imagination Antoinette Burton reframes our realizing of the postcolonial Afro-Asian unity that emerged from the 1955 Bandung convention. Afro-Asian cohesion is better understood, Burton contends, by utilizing friction as a lens to show the racial, category, gender, sexuality, caste, and political tensions through the postcolonial international South. targeting India's imagined courting with Africa, Burton historicizes Africa's function within the emergence of a coherent postcolonial Indian identification. She exhibits how—despite Bandung's rhetoric of equality and brotherhood—Indian id echoed colonial racial hierarchies in its subordination of Africans and blackness. Underscoring Indian anxiousness over Africa and demanding the narratives and dearly held assumptions that presume a sentimentalized, nostalgic, and fraternal heritage of Afro-Asian team spirit, Burton demonstrates the continuing want for anti-heroic, vexed, and fractious postcolonial critique.
