O mar como fronteira : Cook, Banks, Parkinson e a construção de imagens
AbstractBased on a reflection on colonial borders, this paper intends to discuss the notion of the sea as a border. By focusing excessively on continental borders, historians tend to underrate the maritime borders. Based on a case study, James Cook’s first voyage of circumnavigation and corresponding reports, we aim to contribute to a deeper understanding of the Brazilian colonial border, as well as the manner in which the European Empires of the 18th century viewed themselves and their relations with other Empires. We will also explore how the Europe of Enlightenment regarded itself when relating with the European colonies established in the tropics or, in this specific case, with colonial Brazil.
