This course will deal with aspects of European visual culture associated with exploration and colonisation, with an emphasis on material related to Australia and the Pacific. Issues raised by the visual cultures associated with cartography and landscape, ethnography, and natural history will be the focus of the course. There will be an emphasis on eighteenth and nineteenth century practices; this historical material will be dealt with in the light of contemporary art practices and theoretical writing.
