Abstract

In Kenya, while disregarding the cultural autonomy of the Other and reducing the Elsewhere to mere nature, cartography has achieved technical knowledge of territory, thus giving support to British colonialism. The paper responds to the analytical suggestions of humanistic geography and joins the dominance of contemporary cartographic information to K. Blixen's literary production, particularly Out of Africa, seen as "tale of the territory" starting from cultural landscape
