Beyond Tranquebar: Grappling across Cultural Borders in South India

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportAntologiForskningfagfællebedømt


A collection of twenty-four essays, Beyond Tranquebar
takes us to seventeenth-century Denmark which strives to
find a place in the thriving colonial enterprise. It moves to
Maratha-ruled Tanjore where gifts can shift the balance of
power. It takes us to a place where ideas, textiles and
furniture arrive and depart, from as far away as Serampore
in Bengal and Copenhagen in Denmark; spreading literacy
in India and altering tastes in Europe. Born of the
Tranquebar Initiative, an international and
interdisciplinary research network of the National
Museum of Denmark, this collection is unique in that it
centres on activities which radiated from Tranquebar
rather than seeing this place as an appendix to the Danish
national history or to the German Christian mission
