LT 252 - Travel Writing

This course is an introduction to the theory and practice of contemporary travel writing. After defining the reaches and limits of the travel writing genre and examining issues in contemporary travel texts, we focus on travel writing by contemporary authors. Special attention is paid to the ways in which travel writing negotiates notions of identity and otherness, movement and stillness. An important part of this course is the opportunity for students to create their own travel writing in a workshop-style format.
