The Diary of Connie Shakespear: The Naga Hills 1900-1902

Synopsis :

Connie Shakespeare’s ‘Diary’ is a lively and entertaining account of her adventures in the Naga Hills, an area far removed from the familiar Anglicized spaces of colonial India. The juxtaposition of written narrative and amateur photographs vividly brings her unusual experiences to life and highlights the curious position of women travelers in the twentieth century. While the local people and places are the objects of Shakespeare’s imperial gaze, she is acutely aware of the reciprocal nature of this scrutiny. Modern readers will likewise appreciate the incongruity of Victorian femininity amidst indigenous village life and magnificent natural landscapes.
