Education was a crucial transfer point within modern imperial projects; it was a crucial domain through which relationships between the state, religious institutions, various agents of reform, and Indigenous, colonised and enslaved peoples were negotiated. Exploring a range of case studies, I highlight the multiple trajectories of colonial education in the modern British empire, charting both continuities and moments of change, commonalities and divergences. The discussion will explore three key issues: 1 the recurrent debates over the 'educability of the native', debates that were central in shaping colonial educational ideologies and practice and the wider distribution of power and social opportunity in colonial societies; 2 the interplay between connection and disconnection, exchange and the weight of the local in shaping education as a 'civilising', 'modernising', and 'reforming' instrument; 3 the contested and changing place of religion in educational projects in a range of modern empire-building.
Exploring these questions, I suggest, opens up fundamental questions about empire, colonialism, and modernity itself. Add to Calendar. View Map View Map.

Government Seminar. Government Conference. Editors: Mitchell-Walthour , G. In this co-edited volume, Gladys L. Mitchell-Walthour and Elizabeth Hordge-Freeman have invited contributors of African descent from the United States and Brazil to reflect on their multidimensional experiences in the field as researchers, collaborators, and allies to communities of color.

Contributors promote an interdisciplinary perspective, as they represent the fields of sociology, political science, anthropology, and the humanities. They engage W. Du Bois' notion of 'second-sight,' which suggests that the unique positionality of Black researchers might provide them with advantages in their empirical observations and knowledge production.
They expose the complex and contradictory efforts, discourses, and performances that Black researchers must use to implement and develop their community-centered research agenda. They illustrate that 'second-sight' is not inevitable but must be worked at and is sometimes not achieved in certain research and cultural contexts.
