Tim Youngs and Charles Forsdick focus upon the production of travel writing and the various contexts involved within travel writing. They also dedicate volumes to the varying modes of travel, the different types of traveller and critical approaches to travel writing.
Travel Writing is part of the Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies Series. This series provides concise, authoritative guides to key concepts in literary and cultural studies.
