Coloniality | There was so much to absorb, to process today at Imperial Aftermaths, an NTU symposium on imperial legacies. Surprisingly, I didn't fall asleep, as ideas flew clearly, sharply. Here was a more nuanced discussion about colonialism; how it sits with us still in so many quiet, insidious ways. We cannot talk about colonialism, Farish Noor points out, without talking about collaborators: the reason why 100 whitemen-redhairs could rule over 10,000 brown, red, black yellowmen. We are doubled, at once colonial/native, Shirley Chew lyrically reminds us, echoing Bhabha, then reciting Ghosh's fictional-historical account of the great warships in Singapore's Outer Harbour, en route to end the Opium Wars. Today's symposium, with its dancing, QnA format, surprised me. I'd expected another Dialogue with Big Words, smug scholars deriding the very Order that fatted them, speaking the cheemologic dialect of High Modernity. I'd expected to zone out. . Surprising myself, I was struck by the lucid ways these academics pointed out continuities; how the War on Piracy (conducted under colonialism) so strikingly resembles the War on Terror. How the 'successful' British destruction of Malayan communist insurgencies shaped the USA's antiguerrilla campaigns first in Vietnam, then Afghanistan. How even the Marvel©® Avengers®©, whose fight to restore an established, exploitative Order with their high-tech expensive weaponry and radioactivity, uphold, continue very old ways of thinking on imperialism. How do you choose which stories to tell? A sigh then, when I asked this last question of a long day. And these historians and academics smiled at me, because they knew, how blur this wall was: between fact and fiction, between 'truth' and telling. All stories are only partly true, so we need decide what questions we choose to ask, and what tales we wish to weave. If we would collaborate, or contest. We live in the smouldering shadow of imperial aftermaths. . But there is choice and freedom too, (perhaps there always is, was) in what futures we wish to weave, out of this colonial cloth, this shade that still shelters us.

Reposted from world - Vogue Brazil’s fashion director has resigned following an outcry over photos she shared from her 50th birthday party that many felt evoked slavery from Brazil’s colonial era. Donata Meirelles posted photos on her Instagram account showing her sitting on an ornate chair smiling while being flanked by two black women wearing white dresses. Many Brazilians pointed out that the black women’s clothes were similar to those worn by slaves, and the chair resembled a type of chair slave masters used in those times. Meirelles apologized in a statement that was then deleted on Instagram and then followed it up with a resignation announcement in a separate post. Vogue also issued an apology, saying that it “regrets profoundly what happened and hopes the debate generated serves as a source of learning.” (📸: Donata Meirelles) - #donatameirelles #doshow50 #vogue #voguebrazil #voguebrasil #slavery #slave #slaves #race #racism #racismo #racist #colonialism #colonist #fashion #birthday #party #bahia #brazil #brazilian #brasil

Sikh soldiers in the Peshawar Bazaar circa 1910. Significant populations of Sikhs inhabited the largest cities in the Punjab such as Lahore, Rawalpindi and Faisalabad. Before partition the main sikh shrine in Peshawar was Bhai Joga Singh's Gurudwara After the Partition of India in 1947, the minority Hindus and Sikhs migrated to India while many Muslim refugees from India settled in Pakistan. In the decades following Pakistan's independence in 1947, the Sikh community began to re-organise, forming the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee(PGPC) to represent the community and protect the holy sites and heritage of the Sikh religion in Pakistan. The Pakistani government has recently begun to allow Sikhs from India to make pilgrimages to Sikh places of worship in Pakistan and for Pakistani Sikhs to travel to India.

Matrimonios de Martín de Loyola con Beatriz Ñusta y de Juan de Borja con Lorenza Ñusta de Loyola. El Museo del Prado expone en la sala 16 A, hasta el 28 de abril, Matrimonios de Martín de Loyola con Beatriz Ñusta y de Juan de Borja con Lorenza Ñusta de Loyola, un extraordinario ejemplo de la pintura virreinal procedente del Museo Pedro de Osma en Lima, Perú. Con evidente intención propagandística, esta obra representa en un mismo tiempo y espacio dos uniones matrimoniales que tuvieron lugar con cuarenta años de diferencia, y en lugares tan alejados como la Península Ibérica y el virreinato del Perú. #perú #virreinato #mestizaje @georgian_diaspora @the_art_of_dress #women #womenpower #marriage #mixité #influencer #politics #power #colonialism #conquista #incaico #inca #ñusta #historia #empire #painting #historiadelarte #museo #museodelprado

Swedish and other UN forces in the Congo Crisis 1960-1966 . The decolonisation of Africa brought about many wars and conflicts in newly independent nations destabilising the continent further. . Many of the wars were proxy wars involving the US, South Africa and Soviet Union, Cuba and China. . Decolonisation of Africa also marks one of the first major times UN forces were sent on peacekeeping operations drawing from many formerly neutral countries in WW2 such as Ireland and Sweden primarily as Swedish UN forces saw a large amount of fighting. . In the photograph Swedish UN forces are shown with multiple armoured vehicles including M8 Greyhounds. . Follow for more unique military history, I will be doing another post on the decolonisation of Africa tomorrow. . . . . #history #historical #military #war #congo #africa #sweden #swedish #un #ww2 #wwii #worldwar #worldwar2 #m8greyhound #colonialism #militaryhistory #uniquehistory
