Burma through the lens of Linnaeus Tripe
Delegates who attended SAALG's Borderlands Conference at the Royal Asiatic Society in January will be delighted to see Andrew Jarvis' article published in Modern Asian Studies (v.45, no.4, July 2011). Entitled 'The Myriad-Pencil of the Photographer' : seeing, mapping and situating Burma in 1855 (pp. 791-823), it questions how Tripe's photographs should be interpreted today.
