Hidden Histories of Exploration: Exhibiting Geographical Collections
Research by Lowri Jones
Local knowledge and indigenous agency in the history of exploration: studies from the RGS-IBG collections
2006 start. Royal Holloway, University of London: PI Professor Felix Driver.
Lowri's dissertation served as the foundation of a major exhibition highlighting the role of local inhabitants and indigenous intermediaries in histories of exploration (RGS-IBG, 15 October to 10 December 2009), supported by an AHRC Museums, Galleries and Libraries Award to PI Professor Felix Driver (Royal Holloway, University of London). Dr Jones is now a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham.
A printed copy of this thesis is available for consultation in the Foyle Reading Room (reference only). An electronic copy may be ordered through the British Library's e-theses online service.
The history of exploration has often invited celebration; after all, to travel into the unknown is easier said than done. But what, and whom, shall we celebrate?
