Abstract:This study examines how various actors used the British Empire exhibitions of the interwar period to contest the privileges of whiteness found throughout the empire, demonstrating that imperial race relations were profoundly situational, even when focused on the maintenance of privilege. It attempts to outline multiple racial and national identities and traces how these identities were articulated and maneuvered through a transnational discourse on national self-determination. It thus exposes the contingencies of imperial race relations in the years between the world wars by taking up multiple sites of empire for consideration and identifying how transnational issues shaped a particularly imperial exhibitionary complex.
