Lifelong Learning Lecture Series: The Victorians and India: From Company Raj to Crown Raj
GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Paul Fideler, Professor Emeritus of History and Humanities, Lesley University
By the early nineteenth century, the English East India Company (1600–) had tamed the lingering Mughal-Indian Empire and was shaping an abusive Anglo-Indian military and commercial regime, the Company Raj. Following the devastating Sepoy Mutiny/Indian Uprisings of 1857 the Victorian British presence in India became an explicitly colonial one. Victoria was named Empress of India in 1876, and the Indian National Congress formed in 1885.
