This article analyzes the different materials produced from the travels of first Winston Churchill and then Theodore Roosevelt through British East Africa to achieve the following objectives. One goal is to use these materials to understand how embodied encounters with and representations of imperial landscapes interact in mediating the performance of national and racial subjectivities. The second one is to engage with the current “landscape debate” regarding representational and nonrepresentational approaches. It investigates how the tension between dwelling and scenery manifests in specific ways among different subjects in different contexts and reflect on what this might mean for integrating representational and nonrepresentational approaches to landscape
