Landscape and empire 1770-2000

"Covering the period from 1770-2000, this collection examines the relationship between landscape and empire by way of a range of literary, historical, and visual matter. Bringing together the work of established as well as emerging scholars, it considers the connections between the mechanics of empire-building, and the way in which landscape was both viewed and imagined. Organised chronologically, the volume includes, among others, studies of late-eighteenth- and early-nineteenth-century Irish maps, travel accounts to the Cape emigrant experiences in New Zealand, impressions of Jamaica and Dominica, and fictional interpretations of the Indian landscape. Cutting across geographical boundaries, literary genres, and historical periods, Landscape and Empire engages with debates within cultural and gender studies, historiography and nationalism, and will be of interest to students and researchers from across the humanities."--BOOK JACKET
