New Directions in Travel Writing Studies focuses attention on theoretical approaches to travel writing, with the aim to advance the discourse. In six sections – Textuality, Topology, Mobility, Mapping, Alterity and Globality – internationally renowned, as well as emerging, scholars establish a critical milieu for travel writing studies, as well as offer a set of exemplars in the application of theory to travel writing. The volume turns away from regional and historical surveys, or author-based approaches, and from volumes of essays related to particular themes, on postcolonial travel writing, tourism, gender and travel, postmodern travel, and the like. New Directions in Travel Writing Studies is designed to augment and complement the companions, handbooks and introductions to travel writing on the market, and aims to provide a theoretical touchstone for future travel-related studies.
