Colonialism


Victorian texts on this page should be about British colonial projects: newspaper or periodical articles, Letters to the Editor commenting on particular events (such as the "Jamaica Rebellion"), cartoons or illustrations related to colonialism...and so on. Please do not post full-texts of fiction or drama set in a colonial context to this page (short poems are fine), as the storage space of this wiki is not sufficient for these types of texts to be added here.

 

To make this process easier, the Directions for Adding Pages to this site will open in a second window of your browser.  In brief, you will have to both create the page and properly archive it so that you, your teacher, your peers, and others who come to use this site, can locate it again.  Please follow the directions carefully.
