ABOUT

A multicultural perspective on steampunk

This is the tumblr associated with Beyond Victoriana, the oldest-running blog about multicultural steampunk and retro-futurism--that is, steampunk outside of a Western-dominant, Eurocentric framework. All of the steampunkery here focuses on non-Western cultures, underrepresented minorities in Western histories (Asian / Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, First Nation, Hispanic, black / African & other marginalized identities), and the cultural intersection between the West and the non-West.

A nice article highlighting African-Americans in the Wild West:  “In the late 19th and early 20th century, the American West was a place that blacks felt they could start over. Between 1865 and 1920, thousands of blacks left the South to establish towns, make money, and create better lives. Movies tend to ignore their presence, but African Americans were a part of the Wild West as lawmen, outlaws, soldiers, cowboys, settlers, and adventurers.”http://historymasquerade.blogspot.com/2013/02/way-out-west-images-of-african.html
