The Open Access fee for this collection was funded by the European Research Council (ERC) under the Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement no. 679436), and we would like to acknowledge our great debt to the ERC for its generosity. We would also like to thank the ERC and the Irish Research Council (IRC) for contributions towards the cost of illustrations and permissions. We must likewise acknowledge our debt to the ERC for funding the ‘Cultural Geographies of the Colonial Southern Hemisphere’ conference at University College Dublin in 2017. The conference provided the ideal first airing for many of the chapters in this collection, and we are grateful to all participants and interlocutors for their conversations and contributions.

At Manchester University Press, we would like to thank Matthew Frost, our two anonymous peer reviewers, and our series editors, Andrew Smith and Anna Barton. We are delighted to be among such distinguished company in the ‘Interventions: Rethinking the Nineteenth Century’ series. We would also like to thank colleagues at University College Dublin for their ongoing support and goodwill, in particular: John Brannigan, Danielle Clarke, Lucy Cogan, Nick Daly, Fionnuala Dillane, Margaret Kelleher, Kathryn Milligan, and Michelle O’Connell. For stimulating conversations and/or advice at various stages, special thanks must go to Sharae Deckard, Alan Lester, Amanda Nettelbeck, Hussein Omar, and Meg Samuelson, as well as to our collaborators in the SouthHem research team, past and present: Lara Atkin, Megan Kuster, Sarah Galletly, Nathan Garvey, Susan Leavy, Sarah Sharp, and Karen Wade-Wilson. Our most substantial and pressing debt of gratitude, however, is to the contributors to this volume, who have made this experience such an intellectually rewarding and happy one.

Finally, we must include a brief note on the uses of language in this collection. We have not italicised words in Indigenous and non-European languages on the basis that they are not ‘foreign’ to the peoples, cultures, and communities being discussed by contributors. We have capitalised the word ‘Indigenous’ because this is now standard practice among Indigenous studies scholars. We have, however, declined to standardise the capitalisation (or otherwise) of the racial categories ‘black’ and ‘white’ on the basis that the capitalisation of these terms is contested. In the absence of consensus on this issue, we have trusted in the judgement of our contributors in the particular contexts in which they work and write.
