Abstract

This thesis analyses Australian and British newspaper commentary on Australian participation in three British imperial conflicts during the latter part of the nineteenth century. Previous scholarship has rarely examined these conflicts in combination or paid full attention to the language in which they were reported In the press. A close reading of the press coverage of these three conflicts, the Waikato War (1863-64), the Sudan crisis (1885) and the South African War (1899-1902), offers Insights into the discourses that supported settler colonial and imperial processes, and of the anxieties that unsettled them.
