Dead White Men

eBook - 2017
Rate this:
A vital collection that interrogates the stories of the dead white men that litter our histories and landscapes. Juxtaposing the seemingly benign names of Europeans that permeate our geographies with the details of their so-called discoveries and conquests, Dead White Men turns ideas of exploration, discovery, finding and keeping back upon themselves. Engaging with exploration and scientific texts from the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries - texts wrapped up in the history and ongoing present of colonization - this collection builds a fascinating poetry of memory out of histories that are largely forgotten.
