This conference workshop will explore cross-cultural experiences of crisis in the course of colonial encounters. It seeks to examine from the perspective of historical anthropology the varied indigenous and colonial experiences of, and strategies for dealing with, crises resulting from colonial encounters. 'Colonial crisis' will be approached not simply as a negative and destructive notion, but also as a cross-cultural juncture for the reconfiguration of social relationships. Colonial is understood broadly, including both imperial and internal colonialism. A such, we invite papers that focus on the colonized, and/or on the colonizers and their practices and concepts, and that explore the cross-cultural significance of colonial events of crisis, engaging with empirical material.
