Anglo-Indians Qua “Variable Populations”: Cedric Dover and the Vacuity of Race in Colonial India
Debojoy Chanda makes an examination of the work of early twentieth century Anglo-Indian social scientist Cedric Dover. He posits that Dover’s anti-racist writing was a clarion call to Anglo-Indians and those interacting with them. Chanda argues that Dover identifies the supremacist nature of the British in their dealing with Anglo-Indians, based on their flawed racist thinking. Drawing on Dover, Chanda concludes with a more generalised and global call against racist thinking and the prejudice that accompanies it.
