Abstract

Drawing on deconstruction and colonial discourse theory, the paper presents a reading of the RGS's published record of 19th century African exploration. This discourse posits a racially unmarked subject-position as the condition of scientific discussion. The RGS's geographical knowledge is shown to have been formed through the effacement of alternative subject-positions and the appropriation of other ways of knowing.
