Description

'Citizens' or 'Aliens'? Lascar settlement in Britain, 1900-1946  

 By Naina Manjrekar

 

The paper will describe the origins of lascar seamen and their settlement in British ports, showing how the needs of the colonial state regulated whether they were considered ‘aliens’ or ‘British subjects.’

 

Naina Manjrekar is currently pursuing a PhD in History at the School of Oriental and African Studies on the Political Lives of Colonial Seamen. She has previously done an MA History and BA English in New Delhi.
