We will then focus on the role of middle-class travel and tourism in the development of new genres at mid-century, such as Heinrich Heine's Reisebilder, and new media, such as Baedeker's travel guide.
Next we will examine the increase in the ability of women such as Ida Pfeiffer to travel. We will investigate new venues, such as the periodical press, for publishing reports about the world.
In the context of these later developments we will also examine the role of visual images in presenting the world to readers. The final projects for this course can focus on any example of travel writing, including its place in the context of a nationalist movement under the Nazis or as a critique of western imperialism in the post-war era.
