A fascinating subject at times Peoples on Parade felt a little dry with that classic academic textbook feel but in the end I had to be generous with the stars Usually I am turned off by too much editorial or conjecture but Sadiah ureshi had some very interesting things to say about race that can be applied to many topics beyond the 19th century display of people This is a long uote but I think its important and I m glad it was reinforced throughout the writingIt is worth being especially wary of employing color based dichotomies Whitenessand blackness are problematic terms of unification because they can erase significant differences between the people of the same color and they are historically contingent and contested categories For example most of the African peoples discussed were usually referred to as ethnically distinct peoples such as the San Zulu or Ndebele rather than black or African Similarly Britons were subdivided into may groups including the Irish Anglo Saxon and CaledonianThe broad consensus that exhibitions of living foreign peoples reinforced racist attitudes coupled with political investment has created histories that are both emotionally and politically potent Anxieties that one might become complicit in displayed peoples derogation or reenact and thereby contribute to the dissemination of racialist and voyeuristic views are both well founded and one suspects common As such it is likely perhaps inevitable that historians discussing the subject feel under pressure to appear to be resurrecting the shows as opportunities for further voyeuristic consumption or in order to denounce the shows as pseudoscientific entertainment With such powerful responses in the fray it is not difficult to see why many have taken the shows to be unproblematic icons of Western racist exploitation of foreign often colonized peoples Prima facie characterizing the practice of exhibiting foreign peoples as scientifically insignificant racist spectacles may seem accurate and desirable It certainly supports many contemporary notions of what constitutes acceptable entertainment and human treatment consolidates the ostensible objectivity of scientific investigation and is also amenable for certain political ends It is not difficult to empathize with this use or the political commitments of those who uite rightly support campaigns against continuing racist oppression and modern forms of cultural imperialism and seek recompense for past wrongs Nonetheless it is worth being critical of the criteria currently used to establish displayed peoples status within these prjects otherwise these people risk being reestablished as freaks renamed as cultural icons All too often the arguments that individuals such as Baartman or Tambo are iconic of historically marginalized communities have been premised on problematic arguments such as color was central to the ascription of ethnic difference historically there was a single image of the black savage or other operating and displayed peoples were interpreted as typologically representative of this image However as discussed suggestions that living foreign peoples were uniformly interpreted as freaks or others or within the context of imperialist nationalism are worth revisingThis book has sought to avoid simply adding the shows to an already long list of examples of endemic nineteenth century racism rather it has suggested that compelling accounts are needed of how the association between displayed peoples and human variety was created and maintained Highlighting limitations in some of the criteria currently used to conceptualize displayed peoples histories is not intended to imply that they cannot or should not be politicized Rather it is to suggest that being critically reflexive about the contingency of common analytical terms such as race science entertainment or even human offers the option of a far powerful and contextually sensitive basis for the ascription of modern political significanceAs is noted in the conclusion the modern world is not immune to marketing and consume these identities Significantly an example is given showing these kinds of human displays as recently as 2005 when a mock African village was featured during a 4 day festival at Augsburg Zoo proving that the display of humans is not merely a racist relic of the past
