Between colonialism and diaspora : Sikh cultural formations in an imperial world by Tony Ballantyne ( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Bringing South Asian and British imperial history together with recent scholarship on transnationalism and postcolonialism, Tony Ballantyne offers a bold reevaluation of constructions of Sikh identity from the late eighteenth century through the early twenty-first. Ballantyne considers Sikh communities and experiences in Punjab, the rest of South Asia, the United Kingdom, and other parts of the world. He charts the shifting, complex, and frequently competing visions of Sikh identity that have been produced in response to the momentous social changes wrought by colonialism and diaspora. In the process, he argues that Sikh studies must expand its scope to take into account not only how Sikhism is figured in religious and political texts but also on the battlefields of Asia and Europe, in the streets of Singapore and Southall, and in the nightclubs of New Delhi and Newcastle. Constructing an expansive historical archive, Ballantyne draws on film, sculpture, fiction, and Web sites, as well as private papers, government records, journalism, and travel narratives. He proceeds from a critique of recent historiography on the development of Sikhism to an analysis of how Sikh identity changed over the course of the long nineteenth century. Ballantyne goes on to offer a reading of the contested interpretations of the life of Dalip Singh, the last Maharaja of Punjab. He concludes with an exploration of bhangra, a traditional form of Punjabi dance that diasporic artists have transformed into a globally popular music style. Much of bhangra's recent evolution stems from encounters of the Sikh and Afro-Caribbean communities, particularly in the United Kingdom. Ballantyne contends that such cross-cultural encounters are central in defining Sikh identity both in Punjab and the diaspora."--Publisher's website
Moving subjects : gender, mobility, and intimacy in an age of global empire ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Moving Subjects is the first of its kind to make a case not simply for the necessity of a spatial analysis of imperial formations, but for the indispensability of an investigative approach that links space and movement with the domain of the intimate. Through a combination of careful archival research and a commitment to excavating the variety of 'mobile intimacies' at the heart of imperial power, its agents, and its interlocutors, this volume offers new evidence and approaches for scholars engaged in capturing the historical nuances of imperial domination. This book's contributors investigate how intimacy was constructed across the restless world of empire, a world that depended on the circulation of capital and commodities, the exchange of systems of governance and surveillance, and the movement of labourers, slaves, soldiers, and settlers.It's contributors include Tony Ballantyne, Antoinette Burton, Adrian Carton, David Haines, Katherine Ellinghaus, Charlotte Macdonald, Michael A. McDonnell, Kirsten McKenzie, Michelle Moran, Fiona Paisley, Adele Perry, Dana Rabin, Christine M. Skwiot, Rachel Standfield, Frances Steel, Elizabeth Vibert, and Kerry Wynn

What happens if we take Gore seriously? by Tony Ballantyne ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"This lecture will explore issues of place and space in New Zealand history and in historical writing about our colonial past. Using Gore as a case study, it will explore the importance of local institutions and the connections produced through churches, voluntary associations, print culture and civic life. It will examine how these local bonds were woven into larger provincial structures and will assess the extent to which they produced any sense of "New Zealandness". While there have been recent calls to think transnationally about New Zealand's past, this lecture argues that we need to think under as well as across the nation, contending the nation-state itself has colonised the colonial past"--Publisher's website
