Imperial spaces : placing the Irish and Scots in colonial Australia

Auteurs :
PROUDFOOT, L.
HALL, D.

Description :
This book focuses on historical and geographical literature on empire and diaspora, while paying attention to recent schools of thought on imperial history, and to alternative transnational and “located” understandings of diasporic consciousness. Using information contained in letters and diaries, and in records of collective activities, it examines constructions of place imagined by Irish and Scottish emigrants during their outward voyages to Australia, as well as the subsequent processes of pastoral and urban settlement, and religious observances in the colonies of Victoria and New South Wales. - (HC)
