Knowledge Production, Pedagogy, and Institutions in Colonial India free pdf The essays in this volume take up colonial knowledge as an analytical category in South Asian history. They contribute to long-standing debates around agency and power, as well as newer issues--like the coherence of knowledge systems, architecture and materiality, and the dissemination and reception of knowledge--through detailed empirical and textual work. They demonstrate that historically situated analyses provide the most nuanced answers to such questions. Taken together, they show that no single theory of colonial knowledge is possible and that knowledge had diverse uses and receptions in South Asia's colonial past, just as it continues to have today.
