Professor Heather Streets-Salter Presents Work-In-Progress

People in this story

Professor Streets-Salter gave a talk “The Singapore Mutiny of 1915:  The Local was Global” in the Faculty Works-in-Progress Colloquium Series of the College of Social Sciences and Humanities on September 9. Street-Salter’s research, which is part of her forthcoming book, explores imperialism and colonialism as global phenomena through a focus on the administrative, political, and ideological networks that existed between French Indochina, the Dutch East Indies, and British Malaya between 1890 and 1940. She argues that colonial histories cannot be understood without reference to neighboring colonies, rival metropoles, and even, in this case, extra-colonial locations such as China and the Arab world.
