In Deepest Darkest Africa

Kristel Pent

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The project examines the newspaper coverage of H.M. Stanley's second Africa expedition between 1874 and 1878. Its results show that despite the extensive use of Stanley's own despatches in the related articles, the editing created a certain negative image of Stanley as an explorer and that image is still present in modern accounts about history of exploration.
