EXHIBITING THE EMPIRE: CULTURES OF DISPLAY AND THE BRITISH EMPIRE. Ed. by John M. Mackenzie. Manchester University Press, 2015. Distributed by Oxford University Press. 288 pp. with 35 ills. ISBN 9780719091094 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Exhibiting the empire considers how a whole range of cultural products from paintings, prints, photographs, panoramas and 'popular' texts to ephemera, newspapers and the press, theatre and music, exhibitions, institutions and architecture were used to record, celebrate and question the development of the British Empire. The empire was exhibited for a variety of reasons: to promote trade and commerce; to encourage emigration and settlement; to assert, project and cement imperial authority; to digest and display the data and specimens derived from various voyages of exploration and missionary endeavors undertaken in the name of empire; to celebrate and commemorate important landmarks, people or events in the imperial pantheon. By considering a broad sweep of different media and 'imperial moments', this collection highlights the contingent and changing nature of imperial display, as well as its continuing impact in Britain throughout (and beyond) the country's imperial meridian.
