Course Description

We all yearn to travel. But why? In this course, we will investigate this question by not only studying works of travel writing (supposedly non-fiction travel accounts written by those who have done the journeying), but also other works of literature and culture in which travel is a significant theme. Our reading will cover a diversity of writers from around the globe and from different periods in history and we will pay particular attention to the interrelationship amongst the key issues of representation, power, and identity as we consider travel literature alongside interdisciplinary theories about travel and tourism.
