This book addresses the complex interplay between settler identities, colonial practice, time and space. It provides a place-centred analysis of settler colonialism as ethnicised ‘white’ experience of the discursive and the local. The case is argued in the context of the so-called Second British Empire, specifically the settler colonies that were created in Australia, as they were in Canada, Aotearoa/New Zealand and South Africa, during the nineteenth century. The historiographical contexts for the place-based approach to settler identities are addressed. Finally, an overview of the chapters included in this book is given. It explores the evidence for ethnicity and other markers of identity within place narratives performed by Scots and Irish settlers en route to and within colonial south-east Australia.

Keywords:   settler identities, colonial practice, Australia, settler colonialism, Second British Empire, ethnicity
