Professor Reviews History

History Professor Steven Maughan recently published two book reviews in the area of colonial studies. The first, a long online review for H-Net, assesses two books that examine the role of female European missionaries in two very different colonial settings and times: late-colonial India and post-colonial East Africa. You can read the review online. The second article appears in the Journal of British Studies and reviews a recent work on the colonial construction of religion in India. The work examines the ways that the colonial encounter shaped religious response and religious identity in the British Raj as both Indian religious leaders and European missionaries responded to the new conditions created by the environment of colonial modernization ushered in by the imperial state.
