Land, Empire, Diaspora: Humanity's Struggle to Inhabit the Planet

"Land, Empire, Diaspora" is a literary, cultural, and global studies book project that explores 1) the diaspora of colonized peoples from their native lands during England's colonial expansion from the 18th to the 20th century (specifically of Indians from the Indian subcontinent to Guyana and London), and 2) the connection that this diaspora has to the general return across the planet today to pre-colonial land relations that existed before the rise of the British empire, specifically the idea of "the commons" and "inhabitancy." The project examines works of literature (in and out of print, and unpublished), travel narratives, personal diaries, public records, and similar documents.
