This essay explores the connection between empire and gender, through an examination of the gender discourse produced in late nineteenth-century Egypt by both British and Egyptian actors. This exploration is informed by Edward Said's observation that the culture of Empire is not simply a set of ideologies imposed from the metropole onto the periphery but is a shared culture created in collaboration and contrapuntally between the two. In this context, the dichotomies of metropole/periphery and colonizer/colonized need to be reexamined since these concepts do not always exist in opposition and could sometimes coexist in the same person. A final question concerns the existence of common British imperial gender culture.
