Lester, Alan and Dussart, Fae (2008) Trajectories of protection: Protectorates of Aborigines in early 19th century Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. New Zealand Geographer, 64 (3). pp. 205-220. ISSN 0028-8144Full text not available from this repository.
This article tracks the passage of Aboriginal protection, as a contested imperial institution, from the Caribbean to Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand via the Cape Colony and Britain. In doing so, it reconfigures the historical geographies of colonial philanthropy, and of those individuals who sought to implement and resist it, as a set of specific, intersecting trajectories. These trajectories, of people, ideas and texts, both connected and remade multiple colonial places. The article also advocates positioning the contemporary politics of the colonial past in Britain, Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, within a wider, trans-imperial, set of connections.
