Studies of humanitarian activists in practice point to a more fluid, evolving and dynamic form of what could be termed a form of humanitarian activism, which was shaped on the ground, in situ and in action, and was less shaped by human rights declarations and other decrees. These humanitarian activists were proud to say that their actions spoke louder than words. Rosemary Taylor, Elaine Moir and Margaret Moses

for their welfare in the wake of British settlement. We could say they formed an early colonial intelligentsia, able to draw on classical examples to develop their arguments and often beset by fractious relations among themselves. The story of the prison on Rottnest begins in mid-1832 under the regime of James Stirling, the first governor of the colony. As conflict between Noongar and settlers escalated, several officials and

the United States Peace Corps. It examines the sentimental rhetoric of development volunteering agencies to demonstrate how they brought emotion and affect into the technical sphere of international development.

Trevor Burnard, Joy Damousi, and Alan Lester

After introducing the genesis of Anglophone humanitarianism in the post-1760 convergence of evangelical Christianity, ideas of freedom and Enlightenment understandings of civilisation, we suggest first that the fervour of antislavery was soon incorporated into governmental forms of humanitarianism intended to ameliorate imperial subjects’ conditions. This project of humanitarian governance served two purposes. The first was to anglicise an
