   schema:description "Contact between cultures has been understood in various ways and this particular volume considers the cultural, social, scientific, philosophical and political contexts framing contact. In Part 1, the conventional stance is adopted where contact is understood as taking place elsewhere and not on European soil. The chapters thus examine contact far afield and focus on how public and private contexts act upon ensuing interpretations and representations of the contact zone. Part 2 examines Contact Within and the inversed sites of encounter. The essays point to the arrival of these discovered and colonised peoples on European soil as the eras of discovery ushered in periods of settlement and extended colonisation. The paradigm of contact between Europeans and Others and Other spaces was thus displaced both figuratively and literally. Amongst the vehicles for such representations were the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century European imperial and colonial exhibitions or fairs. The studies presented suggest that these encounters were also engineered by domestic contexts which gradually enclosed encounter within other restrictive conceptual frameworks, not on islands and beaches, but in European towns and cities. All of the essays look at the different ways in which individuals and institutions work context into contact situations."@en ;
