The Anglo-Indians as a Mixed-Race Identity in Australia
Sheila Pais James’ article explores how the ambiguous identity of ‘Anglo-Indians’ described in the article by James (2010) was shaped by migration and settlement in a multicultural Australia. In particular, the focus is how the Anglo-Indians’ aspirations for and accumulation of white identity evident in the context of colonial and postcolonial India are refigured on migration to the settler-colony society of Australia. This paper therefore engages in the question of how Anglo-Indians negotiate and rework their identity claims in the context of Australian whiteness and multiculturalism.
