Abstract

Bridging necropolitics and critical heritage studies, this project constructs of transnational history of the British Indian dead. The project’s approach reorients Eurocentric scholarship on memorialization and the dead by centering colonial subjects rather than colonizers. It explores how the materiality and commemoration of the dead altered physical, bureaucratic, and social landscapes in the decades between two world wars. During this period an emergent South Asian public challenged the colonial state over who possessed sovereignty over the living and the dead, and the management of corpses became grounds on which political and cultural authority was forged. The project argues that colonial era memorialization has been inextricably tangled with the power of the South Asian dead to manufacture political meaning and define communities.
