  1. What an awesome post! Thank you for making it!

    Telophase gathered links to non-Western entries in the CGArtists' forum steampunk contest.

    I know I've seen a lot more steampunk art featuring PoC (I keep an eye out for it)... I'll try to get some more links for you. :)

  3. There's not much here so far but I add material on a regular basis (once a week is my goal):
    http://carolinafreestate.blogspot.com/

    It is set in an alternate universe in which the Yemassee War and the Stono Rebellion were successful and in which colonialism received a BIG kick in the teeth as a result.

    Any and all constructive critique is heartily welcome!!!

  5. A bit late to the party, but I just came across this wonderful list of yours. Thank you so much for taking the time to compile it!

    I wanted to direct your attention to a great photography series by Gavin Fernandes called Empire Line which "explores the politics of clothing and its relationship with class and caste in 19th century India ruled by the British Raj".

    I just posted a selection of my favourite images here: http://quietlovesongs.tumblr.com/post/13058612408/gavin-fernandes

  6. Ah, yes! I remember this one. Thanks for posting them! His site requires flash and it's quite difficult to navigate unless one knows what what is looking for.

    There're a couple of other interesting photography series that Beyond Victoriana features as well!
