5. See Low and Lawrence-Zúñiga (2003: 17); cf. Tuan (1977). 6. We can point to the emergence of anthropology during a time in European history when appreciation of an explicit idea of landscape was emerging (Hirsch 1995). Featherstone (1997: 241) notes that the increasing valuation of travel as experience, as in the case of educative, self-formative projects, can be found, for instance, in the Grand Tour of the eighteenth century. In due course some forms of travel would also partake of a masculine, Victorian valorization of physical danger and toil, promoting a broadly Protestant ethic of travel as travail.

In her contribution to Reinventing Anthropology, Laura Nader (1972) argued that it was time for anthropologists to ‘study up’ – for various reasons they had been ‘studying down’, observing people rather less powerful and privileged than themselves; but to understand how powerlessness and poverty were shaped, one must scrutinize the activities of the people at the top.
