Abstract:

Drawing upon recent discussions in geography, this paper examines the discourses of emigration and colonization put forward by members of the British Fourierist movement. Through a close reading of the Fourierist newspaper, The London Phalanx, this paper explores how a set of ideas that are at face value a failure, when placed in context allow an understanding of nineteenth-century colonial projects.
