This talk, based on a new book project called An Empire State of Mind: Plantation Imaginaries and British Colonialism, focuses on the mobile images and mobile forms of the plantation crossing the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Positioning these spaces in conversation, the talk draws on the work of contemporary artists and historical art works to consider the challenges and possibilities of taking such an approach to explore the intersections of art, empire and medicine in the production of the plantation.
