History Hour 37 – “Goa: Perspectives from the Nineteenth-Century” by Dr. Rochelle Pinto held on Friday, 14th December 2007.

This talk presented some of the main arguments from the book Between Empires:  Print and  Policies in Goa. It begins with the argument that the dominant perspectives of the Catholic elite about the place of Goa in relation to the world economy, and particularly in relation to British India left enduring frameworks through which the history of Goa would be understood. It went on to suggest however, that there were many other voices within the nineteenth century, such as the print produced by migrants to Bombay or lower caste petitioners within Goa, that challenged the vision of the elite.

Rochelle Pinto‘s book ‘Between Empires: Print and Politics in Goa’ was published by OUP in October 2007. This was based on her PhD thesis completed in 2003 from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. She did her Master’s degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi, and currently works at the Centre for the Study of Culture and Society, Bangalore.
