Travel and Tourism through the Ages

1811L [CRN: 23806]

The travel diary, whether prompted by pleasure, pilgrimage, official duty, scientific exploration, or profit, emerges as a prominent genre in virtually all times and cultures. Readings include literary accounts of actual travels, such as the autobiographical "slave narratives" recounting involuntary displacement - typified by The Life of Olaudah Equinao - and purely fictive work, such as the medieval Mandeville's Travels, and metaphoric narratives of spiritual quests.
