ABSTRACT

This essay reads W. W. Hunter’s The Annals of Rural Bengal (1868) and Bankimchandra Chatterji’s Anandamath (1881–82) to consider the importance of famine in Victorian imaginings of empire. Along with disaster events such as floods and contagious diseases, endemic famine provided a spectacular instance of the historicity of nature and the naturalization of history over the lifetime of modern British imperialism. The essay investigates how crucial famine was in raising questions about the nature of imperialism—was it a force that produced or mitigated the effects of “natural” disasters? Were disaster events peculiar to tropical areas? Did famine define an essence of India? Did it reveal key elements of governance and governmentality? What demands did large disaster events make on the cultural resources of those who experienced them? More... »
