Talk: Vagabond Age: Photographic Memory and Mauritius
With Dr Natasha Eaton, University College London, as part of the Beyond Contact: Postcolonial Approaches to Art series
Dr Natasha Eaton's current project examines the legacies of labour, slavery, revolution, imprisonment and migrancy in eastern India, Mauritius, the Andamans and north western Australia c.1780 to c.1920. Drawing on photographs, her talk explores the liminal areas between labour and slavery, and the links between sympathy and recognition, despotism and utilitarianism, missionary activity and idolatry.
In 2020, Natasha, Reader in the History of Art at UCL, will be Clark Fellow at The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute. Her research focuses primarily on British and Indian art, notions of cross cultural exchange and material culture.
