AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The article reconstructs 'from verbal and visual evidence the kind of sensibility produced in early Tasmania by the aesthetic theory of associationism.' The author cites examples suggesting that 'associationism was not just another aspect of colonial sensibility, but a fundamental mechanism of psychological transition and accommodation at the very centre of Tasmania's immigrant culture.'(p.138)
