RAHS Day Lecture – Reviving a Settler Colonial World: Landscape Photography in Australia and California

February 1, 2023 @ 13:00 - 14:00

Virtual Event Virtual Event

This address introduces and surveys the white settler world of the late nineteenth century from the perspective of six different landscape photographers. It explores how a range of sites in the Australasian colonies and the American West were defined by a confrontation with environmental limits that led to the development of new territorial imaginaries. I suggest that landscape photography offers a fresh perspective on this settler colonial world, foregrounding new environmental attitudes and their immediate effects for both colonists and Indigenous peoples.

About the speaker: Jarrod Hore is an environmental historian and Co-Director of the New Earth Histories Research Group at UNSW. His book Visions of Nature: How Landscape Photography Shaped Settler Colonialism was published by University of California Press in 2022.
