The H-Decol network provides a forum in which the end of European, American and Asian empires and the rise of independent nation-states, principally, but not exclusively, in the long twentieth century, can be understood holistically, across the boundaries drawn by particular bilateral metropole-colony relations. H-Decol explores the nexus of power, strategy and identity that carved overseas empires into the nation-states that make up the modern atlas. Above all, H-Decol seeks to encourage scholarly discussion and debate across academic disciplines on the course of imperial retrenchment, and the broader cultural, economic, political and ideological imprint left by decolonization on both the 'colonizer' and the 'colonized'.

Author Interview: Caricaturing Culture in India by Ritu Gairola Khanduri on New Books in South Asian Studies

Hi there,

Caricaturing Culture in India: Cartoons and History in the Modern World by Ritu Gairola Khanduri uses the history of cartoons, from colonial to current times, to explore topics such as modernity, outrage, politics and the state.

There's an interesting section of the book on Gandhi and the nationalist movement that might be of interest to list memebers.
