Travel Knowledge: "Witnesses" to "Navigations, Traffiques, and Discoveries"
1 Jan 2001
Jyotsna G. Singh (Associate Professor of English, Michigan State University, USA)
This text examines European travel writing from 1500 to 1800, with an emphasis on travel to the East Indies, Africa, and the Levant. The importance of travel literature has grown in the humanities as scholars plumb such texts for their insights on colonialism, the other, and nation. By focusing not on European discovery of the Americas but on voyages to the East, the essays allow the voices of marginalized travellers to speak through history.
