Tracking Wildlife Conservation in Southern Africa: Histories of Protected Areas in Gorongosa and Maputaland

This project began as an investigation into the visual history of Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park and the way that wildlife images shaped its past. I wanted to expand the historiography of protected areas beyond the human displacement narratives that had directed the field and think more carefully about how different images of “wilderness,” which had incited and corroborated human displacements and dispossession, were produced and circulated. I was also interested in exploring alternative visions of these areas beyond white, colonial, and tourist projections. I intended to explore different media, including films and photography, as well as local impressions of the landscape, as a way of understanding diverse constructions of place.
