Quiet Voices of Empire

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


This was an exhibition curated by the British Empire and Commonwealth Collection (BECC) at the Bristol Archives, in conjunction with Unlocking our Sound Heritage (UOSH). It featured six oral histories and associated images and objects from the BECC collection, including one from the Andaman Islands. I was invited to participate as a guest narrator, reflecting on the Andaman Islands material and its colonial context, exploring the violence and racism of relationships between master and servant in this colonial outpost in the Bay of Bengal.
The exhibition toured various sites in Bristol (Stockwood Library, Sea Mills Library, Create Centre in Spike Island, the Filwood Library and the University of Bristol Library. The online exhibition is available here: https://exhibitions.bristolmuseums.org.uk/quiet-voices-of-empire/andaman-islands/
