THE TAO OF TRAVEL: LESSONS IN (UN)CULTURE, (MIS)CONDUCT, AND (IN)HUMANITY FROM 20th and 21st CENTURY TRAVEL WRITERS

The course concentrates on several prominent 20th and 21st century travel writers and the journeys they undertook and described in their works. Whereas most of them were generally well-behaved and compassionate, the selection includes an example of one notoriously improper and incorrigible traveller who unashamedly took pleasure in the power his position and background permitted him to exert over the ‘natives’ he encountered, while at the same taking due credit for promoting North African culture and literature. The aim of the course is threefold: to familiarise the students with some of the best examples of travel accounts written in English; to introduce the basic tenets of travel writing and the building blocks of travel discourses; and finally, to promote a broader understanding of cultural differences and the role they continue to play in identity formation.
