Description

British colonial expansion led to the display of many valuable African artifacts in Britain. This analysis covers the ways in which African peoples and their material culture were represented, the justifications for imperial expansion; and the effects this had on racial stereotyping.

Texte du rabat

Between 1890 and 1918, British colonial expansion in Africa led to the removal of many African artifacts that were subsequently brought to Britain and displayed. Annie Coombes argues that this activity had profound repercussions for the construction of a national identity within Britain itself--the effects of which are still with us today.
