Blurb/Shorttext:
Space, place and identity are key terms in the formation of a colonial consciousness. 'Settling the Self', examines the conjunction of these concepts in its interdisciplinary study of the nineteenth-century South African landscape. Locating aesthetic analyses and postcolonial theory within a phenomenological account of visual and spatial perception, Dubow examines the colony as a site of desire and anxiety in the making of a colonial identity and its historical legacy. It addresses concerns of common interest to cultural geographers, historians, postcolonial theorists, art historians and others interested in the meaning and experience of landscape.
