Making Colonial Subjects: Education in the Age of Empire
Hall, Catherine
History of Education, v37 n6 p773-787 Nov 2008
This article explores two attempts to envisage a new global world, one created by the West, and to create new colonial subjects. One of these attempts was in Sierra Leone in the 1790s, the other in India in the 1830s. The two case studies are seen through the lens of a father and son, Zachary and Thomas Babington Macaulay, each a representative figure in a particular phase in the development of colonial politics. (Contains 62 footnotes.)
