Course Status: Open
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.
*Chat Hours provide an opportunity for the instructor and students to communicate in "real time". It is an informative and interactive session where course related questions, answers, and discussions take place. While student attendance during chat hours is not required, it is highly recommended. Weekly chat sessions are archived for students who are not able to participate in the live chat sessions at the scheduled times.
