Abstract

The article draws attention to significant shifts in the nature of humane governance. A theoretical intersection is opened up among life geography, colonial discourse analysis, and assemblage theory. It focuses on the career in British colonial governance of G. Arthur, situating him as an individual component within emergent colonial government assemblages. The A. examines the ways in which an individual like Arthur could effect and be affected by shifts in humanitarian and governmental discourse and practice.
